A Special Thanks from Kiyana Gray

Kiyana Gray

Thank you so much for supporting me in the Summer Work Program with your donations. It has been such a blessing. I was able to work at Preferred Printing in West Palm Beach. These work experiences have taught me that there is more than just printing from a regular printer.

My favorite part of the summer work program is Bindery, making plates and also filing papers.

My goal is to be a Graphic Designer and I plan on going to the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale to get my bachelor’s degree. Summer Work Program has helped by helping me become an intern at Preferred Printing, I LOVE doing what I do!

The summer Work Program has helped me see my dreams and realize my goals. I hope you will consider supporting this great program again next year.
