KERRVILLE, TX — BCFS Health and Human Services-Kerrville celebrated the recent high school graduations for three youth in foster care who achieved the academic milestone of a high school diploma. The intimate ceremony was organized by BCFS Health and Human Services’ Program Coordinator Deyanira Garcia and BCFS-Kerrville’s Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) Advocate Kamaria Woods.
“Graduation is a big deal,” explained Garcia, “and we wanted to show them that their success is important.”
Two of the graduates, Danyela and Adianna, have their sights set on joining the armed forces, while Nathaniel hopes to turn his passion for gaming into a career in video game design.
Community partners H-E-B, Target, WalMart, AceMart, the Giving Bee Hill Country Quilt Guild, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, and the Kerr County Child Services Board provided gifts for the graduates, and Kerrville’s Rails Café donated a meal for the ceremony.
“Adianna told me that it means so much to her that we’re in her corner,” said Woods. “It takes a village to raise a child.”
Congratulations to the graduates!
