HONORING JOHN B. KING, JR.
E.L. Haynes' sixth annual Toast to Transformation was heartwarming and hugely successful, thanks to your support and that of so many others like you who share our commitment to our students.
On Thursday, May 4th, hundreds of guests gathered to celebrate E.L. Haynes students' accomplishments and to honor John B. King, Jr., President and C.E.O. of The Education Trust and former U.S. Secretary of Education. His dedication to equity and excellence have improved the lives of countless students and families in DC and across the country.
Throughout the evening our students showcased their work and talents: the elementary school choir performed a song from the Lion King; our middle school students displayed their National History Day Projects; and, lastly, the high school step team opened up the program and several students shared how E.L. Haynes has helped them prepare for college.
We especially want to thank our event sponsors, members of the leadership circle and host committee, and everyone who attended the event or made a donation. Thanks to your generosity this event raised more than $115,000 to support the E.L. Haynes community. If you would still like to help support our students on their path to college, feel free to do so here.
What an exciting year for E.L Haynes. We truly could not do this work without you, and we look forward to celebrating again with you in 2018!
