Lift every voice and sing – that’s how the anthem begins, and that’s how we begin this letter to you. This year, the District 1199C Training & Upgrading Fund celebrates its 45th birthday. How better to celebrate than our annual Triumph of Education ceremony?
On June 5, we will truly lift every voice, and sing of the accomplishments of our union, our students, our members and our friends. Yes, many have known the stony road, the weary years, the silent fears – maybe even the days when hope, unborn, had died. Yet, on this day, we show that we can march on — and we will march on — till victory is won. We have proven that we can tread a path, despite weary feet, from a gloomy past. We know that we can sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us.
We believe in the Triumph of Education. We’ll never forget the sacrifices we’ve made, and those made by our ancestors, friends and family, so we could march in triumph to celebrate our achievements.
