Assistant Majority Leader Kimberly A. Lightford (D-Maywood) continues her partnership with Black Star Project to host The Kimberly A. Lightford Saturday University.
The University is a free tutoring program for students in fifth to eighth grade. The program provides a 12 week curriculum per semester to aid students in approving their academics.
The 2016 class celebrated the end of the 2nd semester with a pizza party, playing games, and participating in a ceremony where they were issued program certificates.
This is the fourth year that the program has operated and graduated students. The Kimberly Lightford Saturday University class of 2016 acknowledged 50 students that completed the 2nd semester.
Senator Lightford and Black Star Project are proud of the success students, teachers and parents have had through the program. Both look forward to continuing the collaboration on behalf of the program.
