Wesbild LIFT Alumni Dinner

Wesbild recently hosted the Wesbild LIFT Alumni Dinner.  Wesbild was proud to host recipients of the Wesbild LIFT Scholarship Program for a night of dinner and conversation.

Since 2012, Wesbild has committed significant funds to support CABE graduates take post-secondary education and training.

CABE program is a School District #43 program that offers an alternative educational delivery model for students looking for a different educational experience. The school uses individualized, self paced instructional programs in the core subjects (Math, Science, Socials, English) and an expanding selection of elective opportunities to help students pursue graduation.

The Alumni Dinner was an enriching night learning about how the scholarship recipients are doing in school and what they have been up to since high school graduation.
