Committee Updates


It's been an uphill climb but LI@B-CC students are taking it like champs!  Students are learning the value of having a "don't give up, don't give in, stick to it" attitude for a cause much bigger than themselves. They are like the Terminator, they may get knocked down but continue to get back up to move forward on their projects. 

Despite the challenges, we are doing our happy dance celebrating a few of our successes.  A huge congrats to Surafel for "nailing" his presentation to Asst. Principal Sharif Robinson to bring classroom versions of Immigration/Refugee Town Hall Meetings to fellow B-CC students.  A standing ovation to Alondra and Evelin for a well done presentation to the Counseling Department of Westland Middle School for a Refugee Anti-bullying campaign for middle schoolers. Two thumbs up to our students who submitted Bills in preparation for Legislative Weekend. We are looking forward to sharing more good news about our upcoming B-CC TV commercial, our documentary, and our 5K run.
