The Haitian Project (THP) is proud to announce the 24th consecutive graduation of Louverture Cleary School Santo 5 (LCS)! This past Saturday, June 15, 2019, the LCS Class of 2019 proudly stood as a promise of hope for Haiti's future. They chose the class name Synergy, as it reflects their deep sense of community and the responsibility they feel to take an active role in improving their society.
Four graduates were chosen to speak at graduation representing the four languages of LCS—Kreyòl, French, English and Spanish. This excerpt is from the speech delivered in English by graduate Lovensky Jean-Louis:
Our decisions are what lead us to achieve our dreams, even when we are afraid, remembering that courage is not the absence of fear. On the contrary, it is trying despite having fear. Only then will we achieve the impossible.
Please join us in congratulating the graduates of the LCS Class of 2019!
It is a recent tradition for the THP community to celebrate each of LCS’ graduating classes with a symbolic gift of $1 in honor of each graduate for the continuation of THP’s mission. Simply include in the donation note that your gift is in honor of the graduates!
