On May 14th, 2015, over 150 foster youth were recognized for their outstanding achievements in the areas of performing arts, academics and athletics at the 23rd Annual Success is Our Future Awards Dinner. The ceremony is supported by Los Angeles County Probation Department and Southern California Foster Home Providers and is an annual event to recognize the varied achievements of foster youth. PLYS youth participated as well and received awards and scholarships in various categories for their impressive accomplishments.
Our exceptional resident, who graduated high school while at the Lodge and who is currently attending Fullerton City College and majoring in Computer Science and Business, won the Success is Our Future Scholarship, one of the seven scholarships awarded to foster youth to assist with education. Several other residents won awards as well, including First Place in Performing Arts and Third Place in Art Contest.
We proudly congratulate all the participants and wish them the very best in their future endeavors!
