Today marked the beginning of the 2018-19 Academic Year! We were so excited to welcome back our returning students who join our first-time freshmen and transfer scholars to round out our student body. As we have done for the past several years, the first day of classes was punctuated by corporate ‘Blessing of the New School Year.’ With a prayer for success, led by Chaplain Rev. Ronnie Miller-Yow, we launched balloons in the air that were attached with our prayers, wishes and hopes.
We look forward to a wonderful year of education, growth and celebration as a family... the Philander Family. 💚💛🎈🎉📚
