2019 University Park World Peace Rose Garden Ceremony
April 25, 2019 — The Third Annual University Park World Peace Rose Garden Awards Ceremony took place on April 25, 2019. Twelve of our students participated and three of our students, Tracy, Hezekiah, and Joshua, were selected to have their poems placed on plaques at the University Park World Peace Rose Garden in Stockton. Each of our students also received medals, commemorative shirts, and their poem framed as a keepsake. Congrats to all who participated and everyone who put this event together. It was a beautiful ceremony with inspirational messages of peace and guest speaker Casey Lara of the USA Olympic 2019 Roller Derby Team. Casey grew up in San Joaquin County in the foster care system and hearing her story was so meaningful.
