On the evening of April 15th, we will highlight our students and core program offerings through an exciting ambiance and engaging activities. You will experience some of the innovative learning opportunities we provide our students.
This year’s Honorary Chair for the evening is Will Shields; former NFL player and member of 2015 NFL Hall of Fame class.
