Eighty-three seniors proved that, indeed, you’re never too old to learn . . . and to graduate.
The inaugural graduation ceremony marked the one-year culmination of adult learning through the new Allied Academy of Lifelong Learning (AALL).
Classes are taught by community facilitators, volunteers and residents themselves.
Designed to improve body, mind and spirit and to help seniors stay engaged in learning, the program attracted more than 210 residents out of 406 in the program’s first year.
Students attending 50 or more hours received their certificate of completion, and those accruing more than 75 hours of classes graduated “with honors.”
