Friends and community members recently gathered to celebrate A Place of Learning's heroes and heart of the program, the tutors. Tutor Gloria Sullivan gets a hug from student Teresita Torres, and a smile from APOL coordinator Laura Ceja. Students and parents showed their appreciation with flowers, dinner and home-baked goodies, and each tutor received a certificate of appreciation from the office of County Supervisor Mary Piepho. Tutors were recognized for freely giving and investing their time for the educational growth of students. As they enjoyed the afternoon celebration, many of the tutors said their greatest reward is watching the students excel in their course work and grow in confidence.
