Samaritan Center’s 2017-18 school year came to a warm and wonderful close at our annual End of Year Recognition Banquet held on June 7.  Over 80 people were in attendance, including the boys and their families; Samaritan Center staff, board members and volunteers; and representatives from our community partner organizations. 

The evening’s theme was that of a Mexican fiesta, and there was much to celebrate!  The boys received a variety of awards for academic achievement, as well as recognition for improvements in behavior and character.

The evening also saw us bid a fond farewell to house parents Danny and Terra Cay, who are moving on to a new academic adventure, and a warm welcome to new house parents Jean and John Cox. 

Congratulations to the boys and their families on a successful year of character growth and academic accomplishment!  We’ll see you in August, and wish you a happy summer.
