Graduation Success at Young Adult Life Transitions
The students from People Inc.’s Young Adult Life Transitions (YALT) program at Daemen College look forward to graduation each year. It is a time to feel both happiness and sadness. We are happy for the students who have been successful in their four years at the Daemen YALT program and wish them well in their future endeavors.
This year, as part of the end of the year event, the students planned a limo ride from the college to the Water Street Landing restaurant in Lewiston, NY for lunch. Everyone had such a great time that the students stated that they would like to make this into an annual event.
“The graduation was a lot of fun with all of my friends,” said Doug Szafranski. “It was nice to see so many Daemen College staff and students in attendance at the graduation. My friend Kevin gave a very nice speech. I will miss YALT and all of my friends that I made these four years.”
“Graduation was a lot of fun,” said Emily Reinhart. “It was amazing that so many friends from Daemen College and the YMCA came to our graduation ceremony. I made many friends on campus and will always remember them.”
Congratulations to all of the graduating students from People Inc.’s Young Adult Life Transitions (YALT) program at Daemen College.
