AVANCE-Austin Class of 2011-2012 Graduation Ceremony.

AVANCE board member Rebecca Leal with graduating mom.

We would like to thank our many supporters for such a successful year. With your help AVANCE was able to expand to new neighborhoods, serve over 200 parents and children, and increase our graduation rates. This year we saw the highest number of moms graduate than in the the last five years!

Our ceremony held on May 19th was the culmination of all of your support and the hard work from staff and our determined moms. We were so proud of our moms and children, for many of whom this is the first of many graduation ceremonies to come, we just had to share the happiness and joy of the day with you. We would like to especially thank MC Karla Leal of Telemundo and keynote speaker Claudia Santamaria, Director of Parent Support with AISD, for taking their time and dedicating it to our families to make this event that much more special.
