September 27, 2018 was an exciting day for 22 young people, a group of 18 young men and 4 young women! For them, Graduation Day was the result of 6 months of hard work and determination.
This was their time to shine, to express appreciation, and to reflect on what they had accomplished in the last 6-months. Community leaders, board members, friends, and family attended this event which was held under the big tree at the shoreline of WAM. Kumit Bobrae Director Janet Schmidt was emcee of the event with over a 100 people in attendance.
Opening remarks were made by graduate Angie Abal in English and Darween Gideon in Marshallese expressing on behalf of their fellow trainees their appreciation for this unique opportunity to be given a second chance in education and be encouraged to better their lives during this 6-month program.
