After the ceremony, Mrs. Smith, the principal at Adams, gave me a brief tour of the school. A program unique to Adams is their “No Excuses University.” This program has young children and their families already thinking about life after high school – about furthering their education, whether it is through a 4 year or 2 year college, technical school, or apprenticeship. Students have the opportunity to deposit money into a savings account thanks to a partnership with 3 Rivers Federal Credit Union. Once a month they have a “College Go Day” celebration and honor students chosen for the “Picture Me in College” recognition. Parents are invited to this event so that families can learn about what college can offer their children if they continue to work hard.
A great day…thank you Adams, and a BIG thank you to our Veterans!
