But I am even prouder of what is behind these numbers. When asked, our students said that EWDC programs made them feel calm, happy, excited, and powerful. In a year when students have been through so much – from Black Lives Matter protests to a global pandemic to recent civil unrest – their words are the truest measure of our impact. This success is because of you, and I can’t thank you enough.
As I said above, March 10th was the hardest day. But March 11th represented something amazing – a chance to find new and exciting ways to better serve our students. My commitment to you is that this is just the beginning.
Here’s to an amazing rest of school year 2020-21 and all the incredible stories in our future.
