Courtney and Suzie are our March Students of the Month for March, selected by Center staff.
Courtney was forced to take a leave to attend to family business in New Jersy, but was determined to return and earn her Bell of Freedom. She returned after several months and is on her way again, an indication of her determination. She serves as an excellent mentor to newly arrived students and, because her vocational goal is to work with seniors, she also volunteers with our Senior Program every week.
Suzie first came to us in 2013, not long after her adoption from China. She attended four Summer Youth Programs before transitioning last summer into our ITP program. Suzie always volunteers to help out with the FAST Saturday program, working with young blind kids. She also regularly goes to with the netoring contingent to the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind in Colorado Springs, and her Mandarin fluency has been an asset in working with another recently-adopted student from China.
Both received a gift certificate to Romancing the Bean, the coffee shop at Littleton Downtown Station.
