Celebrating 150 Brighter Futures with College Bound
On June 7, 2016, the College Bound program hosted its fourth annual College Bound graduation ceremony in honor of the Class of 2016. The Graduation Ceremonies were held at California State University, Northridge, in the Grand Salon; there was an overflow audience of more than 220 happy parents, guardians, and supporters. It was the largest number of College Bound graduates to date!
College Bound recognized the achievements of 150 seniors who will graduate from high school and move on to attend colleges and universities in the fall. Sixty of our most active participants joined us for the ceremony and shared the names of the colleges they will soon be attending; among them are: Pierce College, Moorpark College, CSU Northridge, CSU Long Beach, Cal Poly Pomona, UC Santa Barbara, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Harvard, Columbia, Mount St. Mary's and New York University.
We are grateful to have Assemblymember Matt Dababneh give our Keynote address and to have been able to distribute more than $26,000 in scholarships at our graduation!
Congratulations to the Class of 2016!! We are proud to have been a part of your journey and wish you continued success in all your future endeavors.
