The School Sisters of Notre Dame Educational Center for Women wrapped up the 2019 academic year with a lovely closing ceremony at Monsignor Mulz Hall on Monday.
The School Sisters of Notre Dame have been offering tuition-free education classes for over a decade, and well over 1,000 women have passed through their doors, either learning a new language or preparing for their high school equivalency.
At the end of each school year, the teachers, students and supporters gather to celebrate their ongoing achievements. Nearly 75 students came together Monday to cap off the year and speak about what the center has meant to them.
“I like the center because I have made many friends,” said Jannat Akram, a Level 1 student from Pakistan. “Our teacher Tehmina is nice and helpful. See you in September.”
Many people get nervous speaking in public, so consider the achievement of learning a new language well enough to speak before an entire room.
Level 2 student Mirella Murillo thanked the teacher at the center for their patience and for “day by day, helping us to be better.”
