A Time for Celebration!

Celebrating Our Graduates 2012

Time to Celebrate!  On April 19, Communities In Schools honored 650 graduating CIS seniors in the Class of 2012 as part of our "Celebrating Our Graduates" event. This year the venue moved to Time Warner Cable CIS graduates celebratingArena in order to include selected underclassmen who had shown significant improvement in academics, leadership, and/or perfect attendance, and to create a different kind of experience for our students. It was a high-energy event with the voice of the Charlotte Bobcats leading the way!

Highlights included keynote speaker Joseph B. Washington of Atlanta; a surprise appearance by Mayor Anthony Foxx; the 1st place winner of the annual CIS Speaking Contest, Assante Hazziez, who presented her winning speech; and the announcement of the 2012 CIS Leadership Award winner, Morgan Pollard of South Mecklenburg High School.
