KVO/CBOT, along with the entire Grand Rapids Public School, were asked, by Superintendent Teresa Weatherall Neal, M.Ed, to participate and remember the victims of 911 with a moment of silence.  With classrooms throughout the greater Grand Rapids area, KVO/CBOT students remembered in various ways and locations.  

Pictured at the Gerald R. Ford Museum are student from the Eberhard Center Community Based Occupational Training (CBOT) classroom.  Observing the three minute salute given by the Boy Scouts of America are; Christine Miller, Willie Glenn, Denielle Fouts, Heather Poetschke and Ted Dykstra.

“We, at Eberhard CBOT are proud to salute the victims of the attacks on 9/11.  We walked over to the Gerald R. Ford museum for the 11th anniversary” said Ted, one of the students in the Eberhard CBOT class.

In addition to vocational training, the KVO/CBOT curriculum instructs students in mobility, functional academics and life skills. “Having our students aware of current events is important.  It expands their vision and gives them the opportunity to be active participants in their community” said Diane Weeks, Employment Training Specialist.
