Kiwanis Presents Graduation Awards to ECLC of NJ 2010 Graduating Seniors

On June 17, ECLC of New Jersey’s Chatham campus celebrated the graduation of 27 of its special-needs students. The young adults received high school diplomas conferred by their hometown districts, and each enjoyed the limelight for at least a few moments, as they took center stage to reflect back on field trips, favorite classes and making friends, while thanking their teachers and parents for support.

The Kiwanis Club of the Chathams President Richard Behling presented each graduate with a $100 award, and additional community awards were given out by the Chatham Jaycees and the Chatham branches of Investors Bank, Peapack-Gladstone Bank and TD Bank.

ECLC educates a diverse population of students with severe learning and/or language disabilities, autism spectrum disorder or multiple disabilities. And, this group of graduates reflected that diversity in their wide range of plans for the next chapter in their young lives. Two graduates will attend the College of New Jersey, one plans to enroll in community college and others will work full- or part-time in child care or retail jobs. Several students will join ECLC’s P.R.I.D.E. program, which offers vocational skills training, independent living skills and more to special-needs adults.
