Celebrate the successes of our learners by joining us at the Annual Recognition Event. LCNV students will read essays around the theme “When I Learn English, My Community Grows” that they submitted to our annual essay contest. We will also present awards to LCNV’s dedicated volunteers and community partners. After the ceremony there will be a reception with food and drinks.

As a legislator with a strong reputation for bipartisanship and effectiveness, Keam focuses on creating jobs, improving schools, addressing traffic gridlocks, reducing burdens on businesses, strengthening social safety nets, and making the government more transparent, efficient, and accountable.
