Achieve Gala 2017

Highlights from our 2017 Gala

April 27, 2017

Achieve Gala 2017 was a night to remember, marking the DPS Foundation’s 25th Anniversary with students past and present taking center stage, and an ensemble musical performance unlike ever before. That evening, the audience was brought to its feet several times by our student speakers. Graduating Manual High School Senior Elijah Beauford, who was pursuing apprenticeships to fulfill his dream of being a contractor, shared that his DPS education has been “a staircase to take his future to the next level.” Elijah said, “Your support allows all students to leave DPS knowing that they have the tools, resources and support from the community to follow their dreams. I am a dream broker and I hope to inspire others to do the same.” That night illustrated for all of us—students, educators, parents, business and community leaders—that, united, we make a positive impact in the lives of our DPS students.
