Aim High and Rise Up

I truly love what I do at the moment. It?s all about the people, positive energy/vibes and impact. Whether it?s in a community, in an auditorium, in a classroom, in a home, the energy that we are trying to bring to 2019 is special. Many blessings to Sherman Browne for your talk today and Martin Smallhorne for making it all happen. ?All we do is win?

To celebrate our student’s success, YABC Lehman and East Side House held our annual end term BBQ in their honor. One of? Mr. Smallhorne’s favorite quotes is “Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” This being said, many of our graduating seniors have struggled and overcome overwhelming obstacles in their lives. Despite it all they will all soon be High School graduates and on their way to making a brand new start. Words can not explain how proud we are of you all and all of the hard work you have done. Congrats Let’s party!!
