AND EVERYTHING TURNED OUT RIGHT.
YOU SAT BEHIND A DESK OF WHITE,
AND KNOWLEDGE CAME AT NIGHT.
YOU CAME TO LEARN AND GOT FAR MORE,
WHEN YOU GRADUATED AND WALKED OUT THROUGH THE DOOR.
THANKS FOR BEING A PART OF CCC ACE AND CJC ACE.
It's New Year's Eve!. The last day of the year 2008.
Time to sit down, take a deep breath and try to go over all the things we did in the year. Were there things we could have done differently? I guess so. Were there things we are proud of? Hell, YES!!! Are there things we want to forget? Of Course! Are there things we still want to try again? You, betcha!
See! That is what being a human being is all about! That is what makes us all the people we are. That is what makes us or breaks us.
But as students of CCC ACE and CJC ACE you have a fighting chance in life. You have the power to cross mountains, to swim rivers, to conquer the ocean, to see the world. You have it all within your grasp because you have the ACE programme. It is a great programme. It is a solid programme. You can see that it works if you visit the Belize Bank in Corozal town where Catherine Watson is a teller and a graduate of CCC and CJC ACE along with Mrs. Francisca Alcoser who is second to the Manager at the same bank and a graduate of CJC ACE.
At the BWL, the water company, we have Mrs. Martha Alamilla. She is a graduate of the first class ever to come out of CJC ACE and she is the manager of that office!
At Atlantic Bank we have David Quan who should be finishing his degree this year. David is a Loans Clerk.
At Social Security we have Milton Hoare, a graduate and Dana Cayetana a first year student of CJC ACE.

So tell me. Do I have to continue this list. Hundreds of fine Belizeans have graduated from CCC ACE and CJC ACE. This shows we are good. Thee are people out there who would love to downsize us BUT WE WILL STAND TOGETHER AND WE WILL STAND TALL BECAUSE WE ARE CCC ACE AND CJA ACE AND WE WILL NOT BE DEFEATED.
HIP HIP HOORAY FOR THE ACE PROGRAMME - THE ADULT AND CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMME THAT AS GROWN IN COROZAL AS A CORNERSTONE TO THE SUCCESS OF YOUR FINE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN.
TO ALL GRADUATES AND TO THOSE AT CCC ACE AND CJC ACE RIGHT NOW, HAVE A WONDER NEW YEAR.

Some time in 2009 I will take time to write out all the names of the graduates of CCC ACE and CJC ACE. I owe each and every graduate that recognition.
For how enjoy life, enjoy the moment, enjoy family.
Peace and Love,
