Our fourth cohort of students completed high school in November, and once again, SYEF hosted a great reception to recognize the achievements of our students, and celebrate education in the Archers Post community. With this group of seven girls and five boys, we have 53 youth who have completed high school since we started. We also selected 12 new scholarship recipients for the class of 2021, and we introduced these young and aspirational minds to our room full of SYEF students, donors and community leaders. Once again, it was a day full of great moments, punctuated by traditional songs and dances, and moments in which many of our current students demonstrated their new knowledge, such as second-year student Almond, who spoke to the crowd in Chinese (the fourth language he is learning to speak). A few days later, our graduates provided advice and encouragement to our new students in a forum co-hosted by students from Colorado State University.
