Graduations are here!

We are so proud of our graduates! For children who grow up in foster care, high school graduation is an incredible accomplishment. It doesn’t matter how smart a student is, their challenges can be overwhelming and they deal with issues on a daily basis that we cannot begin to understand. That makes their success harder to come by, but also that much sweeter. Our students pushed through, worked hard, and learned that learning is something that is all theirs, something they will have forever. Our coaches did incredible work in some very difficult circumstances. They stood by their kids and wouldn’t let them falter. Best Foot Forward was created for the sole purpose of changing lives for the better; that is what we are doing and that is what we will continue to do! Congratulations to all!!
