A Lasting Impact

May through July is a special time at WWCC when we hold graduation ceremonies to celebrate the progress and achievements of parents and children who have successfully completed our programs. Each year ushers in a new group to reach these significant milestones, and we watch on, proud of the exciting steps that our graduates have taken toward the future. We congratulate all of our graduates for 2017 on their hard work and commitment to learning.
