RI Blood Center and EPHS Health Occupations Recognize Two Amazing Students

The Blood Center and Health Occs Program held the final Blood drive of the school year last Thursday and it was another great success, collecting 52 pints of blood; enough to save 156 lives!!! Great work Townies!

Even more impressive is that EPHS has two of the seven "Gallon Grads" in the State of RI as recognized by the RI Blood Center.

Camryn Correira and Michael Robinson have each donated 8 times over their 4 years at EPHS and in being recognized as Gallon Grads will wear special cords at graduation, and be honored by the blood center at a ceremony at Dave and Buster's later this year.

CTC Senior Certificate Ceremony 2023

In a joyous, yet bittersweet, event on Friday evening, CTC Teachers and Staff, EPHS and District Administrators, and Mayor DaSilva gathered with family and friends to honor the CTC Class of 2023 scholarship winners, National Technical Honor Society Inductees, and Program Completers.

The evening was a celebration of countless achievements in the classrooms, labs, and beyond the school. Students were honored for academic excellence, impressive community service, advanced on-the-job training, earning a myriad of industry certification, and giving back to their City.

Mayor DaSilva spoke about the tremendous impact that CTC students have on East Providence, whether it be by preparing meals in Culinary, repairing vehicles in Automotive, or building sheds for our residents in Construction.

Now that these 120 CTC Graduates have their Certificates and Credentials attesting that they are ready for College and Career, they will have an even greater impact on East Providence as skilled, professional adults in our community.
