On Thursday, November 29th Diplomas Now held their first family engagement event, Step up and Step Out: Stepping with Purpose and Pride. Prior to the show there was a resource fair where several organizations within our community passed out pamphlets and shared information regarding the services that they offer.
With 112 individuals in attendance, the show featured 52 steppers from six organizations within our community and four volunteers from Hilton who generously donated 200 cookies. However, the big kicker of the night was our very own Principal Stevens stepping and showing out with his fraternity brothers from Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated. But the most important segment of the step show was how all of the organizations spoke about the importance of obtaining a quality education and giving back to our community through community service.
Thank you to everyone who attended, helped, and participated, but special thanks goes out to my City Year team!
