Sili Mana’o -Savusa, Family Center Coordinator for Southwest Youth and Family Services, and Highline School District board member, says, “We are in a place where community has been saying for years, ‘Come on people. Come on schools. Come on State. We’re ready to move.’ This is the opportunity I think.” She spoke at a symposium laying out details of the Road Map Project for Education Results Dec. 9.

Dear White Center Community: THANK YOU from all of us at the White Center CDA for making last Saturday’s White Center Community Summit a success! Hundreds were able to access dozens of resources connected to Housing, Health, Employment and Education. In addition, participants attended community discussions (some in their own native language) to talk about these topics and how issues have effected them in the neighborhood. Food and Entertainment representing many countries were presented in the afternoon, and 14 different workshops rounded out the day in what was a great day to celebrate White Center. Our event artist Carol Tagawa (who also works at Cascade Middle School) created this drawing for the event:

To see more photos via Twitter, please click here. We’ll have more photos and a Community Summit video to post in the next couple of weeks. Thank you to the many community partner organizations and White Center residents who made this event possible. See you at the next White Center Community Summit - Saturday, December 3, 2011!
