The International Newcomer Academy hosted its25th Anniversary Celebration: 25 Years of Welcoming Newcomers Thursday, December 20 at the campus.
Accounts of the school’s history as well as success stories from former and current students were shared throughout the evening. Written, electronic and video recordings displayed in designated rooms told the stories of past and present students. The celebration also included additional presentations, photo collages, performances and a wall of fame recognition.
Attendees could pinpoint their countries or origin around the world on an interactive map. They were also encouraged to write or draw their INA memories, thoughts or best wishes on small slips of paper that would be part of a campus anniversary banner.
