Mt. Diablo's 10th Annual Celebration of Success

On Wednesday October 20, 2010, Mt. Diablo Unified School District Special Education Department recognized 52 students on their achievements at the 10th Annual Celebration of Success. In the Spring of last year each school site in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District was given the opportunity to nominate one student from their site who is receiving special education services that has excelled in any area of their services including academics, related services, etc. Concord High School graciously supported the event to take place in their multi use room, to bring in the celebratory spirit the room was decorated with fall d├ęcor, flowers, balloons and pumpkins. As the guests arrived and the evening took place all were welcomed with beautiful music played by a string quartet from the Concord High School band, refreshments donated by community businesses and the greetings of staff, teachers, principals, friends, family and board members. Students receiving their awards were excited, happy, anxious, nervous, proud and their family members shared the same enthusiasm. Stories from each school about why each student was chosen to receive their award were read with glee as the students came to the stage to receive their medals from Superintendent Dr. Lawrence and Board Member Dick Allen. To close the evening a drawing of the pumpkins, flowers and balloons occurred for the students to take home a little bit of the affair decorations. All who attended that evening left with smiles on their faces and the encouragement of the possibilities ahead.
