One Bright Ray graduates 62 students

Graduates Sharlyn Sanchez(left) and Cassandra Amparo with One Bright Ray CEO Marcus Delgado. They were among 62 graduates.

Last Friday night, 62 students from what had been Fairhill Community High School and North Philadelphia Community High School received diplomas at a ceremony that celebrated resilience and second chances.

The two schools had been operated by One Bright Ray, Inc., as alternative schools for students who have dropped out or are on the verge of dropping out from traditional high schools. The so-called "accelerated schools" give over-age and under-credited students a relative fast track to a diploma.

They were merged last summer to form One Bright Ray Community High School, primarily as a result of budget cuts to alternative schools from the District.

Graduates walk"It’s been a long road, but you made it,” said Marcus Delgado, CEO of One Bright Ray and a native of the neighborhood in eastern North Philadelphia that most of the students come from.

Since 2006, One Bright Ray schools have graduated 525 students, Delgado said.

Each teacher selected two students for special awards, and the school therapist also cited two graduates for exceptional perseverance. Sharlyn Sanchez graduated while advocating for her developmentally disabled son who she gave birth to at 16. Ulises Ventura was recognized for overcoming personal struggles that had led to sporadic attendance.

More than half the students had yellow sashes for “honors” to go with their hard-won diplomas.

Six students received the Phoenix Award for maintaining consistently high grades: Natasha Fogel, Angelique DeBraganza, Eddie Rosado, Beryl Davis, Sara Cassis, and Shydera Edwards.

Have you sensed the recent chatter about expired web 2.0 properties? It seems that recently IMers have been finding new uses for these properties which at one time were just used to pass link juice in link pyramids. But no more are they just used for that. It turns out that they are a vital component if you want to build your own PBN, with web 2.0 properties rather than regular domains. Why not look into [url=http://www.konker.io/services/9931-i-will-find-and-register-an-expired-tumblr-blog-with-high-trust-flow-20-tf20]expiring tumblr blogs[/url] for your PBN?
