Greetings! 

This newsletter is a perfect wrap-up of the 2016-2017 academic year, featuring the students, volunteers, and community partners recognized at our Annual Recognition event, and a progress report of LCNV's new workforce program, Destination Workforce®. It was another productive year, with so many contributing in countless ways to serve LCNV's mission. Listening to the students read their essays on Learning Gives Me Power brought everything together. The years fly by so fast that it is hard to find the time to stop and assess how much we have accomplished, and reflect on the importance of our work. I know that now because I am looking back over 15 years to see how far we have come.


Sincerely, 








Patti Donnelly, Executive Director
