This month our Administration & Operation’s Team presented certificates to our A/AB Honor Roll youths. These youths have been outstanding individuals, this honor was bestowed upon them for their unique ability to maintain excelling grades and behavior in school. Every one of our youth are important to us, they each have their own unique way of expressing themselves. 

We strive to bring the best out in each youth by showing them the awareness of how gentle and kind the human heart can be. Likewise, these youths have touched the lives of CSI-Ocala staff making our facility a kinder gentler workplace. A luncheon was prepared for all the Honor Roll youths. This delicious spread consisted of cheeseburgers, french fries, baked beans, southern-style potato salad, chips, drink, and a decorative cake. The youth enjoyed socializing and listening to music!
