A Letter From SOCHi President

Marina Isounts

Often times, many jokingly say, “my presence is a present” in the face of being obliged with gift giving on a special occasion. Here at SOCHi, that phrase can go a long way. To us, your presence is indeed a present. Anytime our students are present in class and changing the tides of their lives, they are giving us the greatest gift of all; pride.

SOCHi is not just a school, but a movement. A movement that involves a community wanting more for themselves. It is not said enough, but we are very proud of you all for showing up and taking control of your career paths. Your attendance is a vital part of this movement. Please continue to be the gift that keeps on giving.

Attend today. Achieve tomorrow,

Marina Isounts
