Any new undertaking is a challenge and that challenge is best explored with others who ‘having been there’ might offer new insights and ways to approach the more difficult. Bible study provided the opportunity to explore God’ word and we thank Connie Holland our teacher. Computer studies aided to prepare for work and we thank Lara Taylor our teacher. We also thank all the various art teachers, work/advanced education teachers and presenters. We thank BROKEN WINGS, Bro Roger and Board Chair Dr Eathan Gillespie and our wonderful MENTORS! Our new graduates are now ‘soaring’ and ready to take that next big step…even if it takes a few more tiny steps! GO GIRLS! CWJC WILL BE ENROLLING A NEW CLASS TO BEGIN LATE AUGUST…for further information if you are a woman who wants to change your life…285-9133.
