Achieve Gala 2022

Highlights from our Achieve Gala 2022

April 14, 2022

Achieve Gala 2022 was an incredible night celebrating DPS students and educators. The event was highlighted by student emcee Nya, a senior at Northfield High School, as well as two student speakers: Saedra, a junior from East High School and our keynote speaker, Moudjibatou, a senior from Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy. The Gala also featured DPS student performance groups including the West High School drumline, the Strive Prep SMART cheerleading squad, the Teller Elementary School choir, and two student DJs from Lake Middle School.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and gala co-chairs Manny and Sylvia Hilario and Jeanne and Dick Saunders for making this night possible. Together we raised more than $800,000 in support of DPS students and schools. Your support makes a difference in the lives of our students and helps ensure that Every Child Succeeds.
