The celebratory evening began with guests mingling and enjoying some delicious horderves in the New Balance Foundation Pavilion lobby. Tammie Watson, Kids Café Coordinator, and Lisa Smith, Senior Director of Fitness and Nutrition, provided all of our attendees with various trays of delicacies that included spinach and artichoke dip, chicken satay, mac and cheese, pigs in a blanket and more. The high energy evening continued with an awards ceremony hosted by Morgan Bondy and Portsha Franklin, our College Success Coaches inside the Pavilion. We honored our high school seniors as they joined our Alumni Family and recognized our 2019 college graduates and high school juniors as they advance to their senior year. We ended the celebration with a decadent ice cream bar.
Thank you to everyone who joined us at our 5th annual Alumni Induction Ceremony and helped us celebrate the outstanding young people of West End House! The night was an incredible and inspirational display of the amazing achievements of our youth. We are honored to welcome our high school seniors into our Alumni Family and also recognize our 2019 college graduates and high school juniors as they advance to their senior year.
