Twenty-four students were recognized during STRIVE’s annual commemoration Celebration at Prairie Ridge High School on Thursday, May 26. Members of District 155’s Board of Education presented each student with a diploma and congratulated them on this distinct accomplishment.
The STRIVE (Students Training for Recreation, Independence, Vocation and Education) program at Prairie Ridge allows students receiving special education services to continue with District 155 from the time they complete high school graduation requirements until the day before they turn 22. Students in the STRIVE program receive transition services and instruction to assist them in moving from school to adult life, including vocational training, adult education, independent living, and employment.
During the program 27 local businesses were also recognized for providing meaningful internship experiences for the students in the STRIVE Transition program.
Students also had an opportunity to speak about their internships which have also lead to job placement. They also shared memories, words of encouragement to their fellow classmates, and thanked family members and faculty for their success.
