Center for New Americans on WGBY
Thank you to WGBY for letting Shaila share her story of her citizenship journey. With support from Center for New Americans, Shaila naturalized as a U.S. citizen on July 4th. Carolee McGrath sat down with Shaila and Center for New Americans' Director, Laurie Millman, to talk about Shaila’s path to citizenship.
Student Poetry Anthology
Center for New Americans published a Student Anthology featuring poems and artwork from students in our Amherst, Northampton, and Greenfield classes. The project was funded by a grant from First Literacy Lab. The book was edited by our teacher, Linda Neas, and published by Randy Zucco at Levellers Press.
End of Semester Celebration
Center for New Americans' students, staff, board members, and other volunteers came together for a joyous end-of-semester celebration. Students received certificates for completing class levels, and acknowledged themselves for achieving their goals. Thank you to our volunteer, Mary Ellen Kelly, for capturing this moment.
