Our newest center, NOE León celebrated their first ever graduation! With only one year finished, this was more of a recognition ceremony than a true graduation, but that didn't mean the recreation room wasn't packed full of family members there to cheer on the students. El Presidente Dave Munson and his wife Suzette of Saddlback Leather Company, NOE León's primary sponsor, were there to help hand out certificates. Many of the NOE students' parents work at Saddleback's Old Mexico Manufacturing plant, and many of those parents are English students at NOE themselves! Said NOE Executive Director Brian Overcast, "It reminded me SO MUCH of our first Clausura (closing ceremony/graduation) in 1992 in a garage!" That means there are very good things in store for the future of NOE León!
