Well, this past year has been a whirlwind! Online classes, virtual graduations, the Summer Enrichment camp being cancelled – too much has happened to keep up with!
One way we have been able to keep up is through our public social media page and private group on Facebook – our page is www.facebook.com/JacobsLadder.Inc, and anyone can go there; the group is for Alumni only, and you’ll need permission to join: www.facebook.com/groups/jladderalumni/.
We encourage all Climbers and supporters to drop by and check out what is going on in the Facebook neck of the woods (and especially you Climber Alumni!), and congratulations to our 2020 Graduates!
