The EDGE Program hosted its annual awards banquet at Whispering Springs in Fond Du Lac, honoring students for their academic, and personal accomplishments over the past year.  Getting the chance to see so many faces from all throughout the district, and give them the chance to (re)connect with one another is an awesome way to cap the spring semester off!edge-banquet-fond-du-lac-may-2017-web-47

Current students, as well as some EDGE alumni shared their stories with the group, highlighting the challenges, triumphs and anticipation for whatever comes next- including some who have chosen to further their education after graduation.
