Connie Bleicher’s Paraeducator Award, New April BDU Scholars of the Month, Professor Jennifer Vincent’s Spotlight, and Much More!

We have tons of great stuff going on at BDU!

The Best Buddies had a great time at their in-person Friendship Walk last Sunday and in turn raised some money to support this amazing organization. We started with a track walk and ended with some delicious food from Subway. What a great day! A big shout out to the Best Buddies sponsors Katie Smith & Lisa Stephens along with the admin & guidance that came out to support the event.

BDU has selected three outstanding students as our April BDU Scholars of the Month and in typical fashion, Mrs. Miller surprised them with their recognition, a personal thank you card from their teachers, and a bag of goodies. Congratulations to Aneotzy Rodriguez – BDU Senior, Curtis Patterson – BDU Junior, and Kevin Mack – BDU Sophomore.

BDU was excited to honor some of our amazing scholars and staff members that were unable to attend the Dare to Dream Drive-up event last week. Congratulations to BDU Seniors Vincente Garcia who received the Dream Chaser Award and Sylvia Ruiz who received the Trailblazer Award along with paraprofessional Connie Bleicher who received the Paraeducator award!

Spotlight this week on VU/BDU Adjunct Professor Jennifer Vincent who teaches dual-credit courses MUSI 220 History of American Music and MUSI 218 Music Appreciation. Here she uses Jamboard to have our scholars share the differences they hear between a baroque and classical piece.
