This event started in 2000 as an effort to celebrate our high achieving students. It is especially important for the community to acknowledge our high achieving students to reiterate the importance of higher education and to act as a support group for these students as they embark upon a new phase in their lives.
About The Ceremony
The CEJJES Institute’s Annual Awards Ceremony and Reception for High School Graduates is an affair that we are most proud to sponsor. This event allows us to call attention to the achievements of young people within our own community. It allows us to dispel any notions that suggest that our youth are apathetic about education. An invitation only event, we join with the families of our honorees in the spirit of the African village to recognize, support and pay tribute to our high achieving students.
