All of the scholars have been putting in many hours to start the school year strong, and this last Sunday we were able to have the opportunity to recognize their hard work and engagement in the program through the annual recommitment ceremony.  The heat subsided as program began and were able to enjoy a cool Colorado afternoon as each scholar recited their goals for the upcoming year.  Each individual also took time in this ceremony to express gratitude for the individuals that have helped along the way.

Overall, it was a great afternoon where staff, board members, volunteers, mentors, family, and others associated with the program were able to see how the scholars are truly motivated to succeed through all their endeavors. They set realistic expectations, but it was apparent that all of the boys and girls were pushing themselves to become more well rounded individuals in academic, social, and spiritual endeavors.  It is clear that obstacles will arise on this path, but each scholar is highly motivated to do whatever they can to reach their full potential.  It was a great event and they are terrific kids!  Watch the video
