Firewall Celebrates Another Successful Year!

 2013/14 Awards Ceremony

DSC00808Wow, what a year! It was incredible to see all of our students, parents, staff, supporters, and volunteers gathered together to celebrate at Firewall’s annual award’s ceremony. At the event, beach balls were tossed around the crowd, certificates of participation were handed to students, pictures were taken, and individual students from across Firewall’s six Centers were recognized for their achievements as was the graduating senior class.

At Firewall, our vision is to transform students into servant leaders and every day, we tell each student that walks through our doors that they have the potential to be great and reach their dreams. With that being said, we were proud to introduce the creation of Firewall’s new annual Servant Leader Scholarship for graduating high school seniors. This year’s award went to Annalyse DeFrank and Kathia Carranza. These special young ladies are true servant leaders who have gone the extra mile to prove that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible! Stay tuned for their stories in next month’s newsletter.


Thank you everyone for such an awesome year and congratulations
to all of our students who worked so hard each and every day!



Wells Fargo Community Partnership

As part of our partnership with the bank, Steven Basar from the Wells Fargo Coconut Creek branch came to our Center at Pompano Beach Middle School to teach students the importance of money management and saving for their future. We greatly value these relationships and the long-term impact that they have on our students.
