Bomber Dedication

On Wednesday, City Year held its Opening Day for the FY19. I am so honored and excited to be a part of this outstanding organization, and wanted to take a moment to reflect on a ceremony we had before the event.

This ceremony was called the Bomber [Jacket] Dedication. In this ceremony, we were able to specify a person or persons we wanted to dedicate our service year to.

After we decided who we would be choosing, we spoke out about who we chose and why.

I chose to dedicate my Bomber to the students whose first language is not English, because I have seen the barriers they face in high school, and I truly believe that language should not be a barrier in receiving a comprehensive, challenging, and fulfilling education.

I look forward to this year of service, and am inspired everyday by my teammates and the students we serve.
