Pipeline to Possibilities, which helped educate students on various aspects of the justice system, concluded on May 18.
Students from Kimball and South Oak Cliff high schools participated in the closing ceremony at Mountain View College. Various college representatives, Mountain View College President Dr. Robert Garza, entrepreneurs and more attended the event.
The African American Success Initiative partnered with local Dallas county judges to create the program. The program worked to inspire students to be the best they could be and encouraged them to make the right critical decisions for their bright futures.
“I believe it is this type of programming that shows the commitment of the community, not only willing to share their professional experiences, but rather a vested interest in the growth and development of young people,”AASI Coordinator Jamila Thomas said.
Students from South Oak Cliff High School and Kimball High School have participated in the pilot program since February. The program provided various programming components to the schools on a monthly basis for four months.
“This was a great opportunity for students to experience the justice system first hand and at its best,” said Olliedra Foppe of Kimball High School.
