Garden Party Planned to Celebrate Success of At-Risk Youth in Developing a Community Garden
Students at Landmark High School in Nebo School District have spent months completing the installation and planting of a garden that will serve the needs of the community, and will host a garden party on June 28, 2012, to celebrate its completion.
Graduation allows for a long summer with no more thoughts of high school, a time for celebrating the achievements of the four past years, and the excitement of what’s to come after high school.
However, graduating from high school can be so much more. It can be a time to reflect on lessons learned and can also be a time to reflect on the parents, teachers, and mentors who helped each graduate get to the point they are at today.
Graduation is a celebration of the hard work of the graduates, teachers, and parents.
