Celebrate Our Youth 2019

Saturday, April 27th, 2019 from 10am-Noon at Davis High School

Join us for brunch, entertainment and student testimonials on Saturday, April 27th from 10am-Noon at Davis High School. 

Celebrate Our Youth is one of the annual events that helps fund the Yakima Schools Foundation. Each year Celebrate Our Youth strives to share the great things that are happening in our schools and highlights the people making it happen such as the students, principals, teachers, and community members while raising money to support all their good work.

This year our event will feature Dr. Peter Asante as our inaugural “Champion of Youth” award recipient. The morning will begin with a brunch buffet, include student testimonials, music, entertainment, and a raffle. Dr. Asante will share powerful projects in our community to support the mental, physical, and emotional health of the students in the Yakima School District. Dr. Asante was recently featured in the Yakima Herald’s “39 under 39” article. Here is your chance to meet and hear from Dr. Peter Asante.

Celebrate Our Youth 2019

Saturday, April 27th 10am-Noon at Davis High School

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.

Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.

Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.

Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.

Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
