Dancing with the Foster Youth

t’s hard to believe that the Dancing With the Foster Care Stars event celebrated its fifth year this year! And of course the event has grown to be bigger and better than ever. Dr. Dione Washington and her team put together last week’s event at Steven’s Steakhouse and it was a packed house in support of our foster students. The theme was the Roaring 20’s. There were plenty of milestones being marked this year, including the fifth year of the event. It is also the tenth year for the LATTC Guardian Scholars, one of the most important programs we have on campus. Also I must mention that the real driving force behind our Foster and Kinship Care Program is Dr. Dione Washington. This is her platinum anniversary in the field of foster care, 20 years of service to young people in this area, 17 of those years right here at Trade Tech. Please join me in thanking her for outstanding contributions to this program as well as generations of young people and families.


(Also, a very special thank you to Ms. Young for providing the hair stylists, to Ms. Ley for providing make-up artists and to Mr. Robinson for coordinating and overseeing all beauty services for the 5th year!
