FCCS was proud to celebrate the achievements of youth involved with the agency with a graduation party that was held on May 22. Seventy-six youth were recognized for graduating from high school or earning their GEDs. They enjoyed an evening of music, dancing and door prizes with their friends and families. Franklin County Councilmember Emmanuel Remy and FCCS Executive Director Chip Spinning were also on hand to commend the youth and those who supported them.
The party was a great success thanks to the help of the Volunteer Services Advisory Committee, Simba Advisory Committee, Malaika Advisory Committee, the Citizens Advisory Committee and others, as well as donations from many. FCCS is particularly grateful for the help of New Hope Church, whose members decorated the party space and donated more than $12,000 in decorations and gifts, and CME Credit Union for donating gift bags.
