Boys Town North Florida enthusiastically celebrated four students on their recent graduation from Godby High School. Several of these students have resided in the Family Home Program for years, most recently returning to brick-and-mortar school after completing their 2020-2021 school year at the ART Town Academy Center. Each of the graduates intends to move on to attend college or begin their careers in the workforce.
Leading up to graduation, staff, board members and donors graciously donated going-away items for the youth, such as kitchen items, bedding sets, school and work materials, hygiene supplies and more, to fill up personalized totes for each of the four graduates. These totes were gifted to the youth during their graduation party which took place on Thursday, May 26th, just a day before their official graduation ceremony. Though unexpected rain modified some of the graduation party plans, Boys Town staff, kids and friends gathered to celebrate these youth on their incredible accomplishments. Throughout the afternoon, the graduates and attendees played games and enjoyed special, graduation-themed treats and snow cones from the Big Easy Snowball truck.
We are so proud of each of these graduates on their incredible achievements. We thank everyone who helped us celebrate them the way they deserve and for sending them off with supplies and skills to succeed.
