Christian Fellowship Church was filled with excited and emotional adults when the graduating class walked down the aisle on June 11. Grossmont Adult School partnered with the East County Posse and the East County Transitional Living Center. 

Pastor David Zamora, Resource Center manager, and Helen Zamora, marketing associate, both spoke on how proud they are of their student’s achievements. These graduates worked and fulfilled a one-year four-step program to change their lives from being homeless, drug and alcohol addicted and now they are on a new path.

“The graduates are like members of my family,” said Helen Zamora. “We are very attached to them. It’s an emotional day. Most of the graduates are now employed and are a positive member of our community.”

Jeffrey Meredith, principal of Foothills Adult School spoke at the graduation ceremony.

“An exciting accomplishment for these young people to turn their lives around. This is one of the most exciting days at Grossmont Adult School,” he said.

Gary Schwartzwald, Grossmont Adult School director, distributed the diplomas.

“Grossmont helps the students achieve their goals and move onto the next step for a successful life,” he said.

Making all of this possible for the graduates was teacher Georginne Parisi.

“I am overwhelmed with what these wonderful students have achieved. There were hurdles you can’t even imagine and they are now on the right path for their new life,” she said.

Herald Brown, ECTLC CEO said everyone was “very proud of the work that God has done in each one of these graduates who are now ready to be gainfully employed and be a productive member of the community.”

Gregg Brown, Chairman of the East County Posse, said, after last year’s graduation he went to the members and told them this was the most gratifying thing he had done all year and wanted to continue his support.
