Family Seminar Fun

The week of February 10 was very special for Cherokee Creek Boys School as a multitude of events happened concurrently for our wonderful families. Some of our CCBS mothers kicked off the festivities by attending Women’s Seminar hosted by our founder, Beth Black. They then attended, en masse, CCBS’s final basketball game of the season — or at least the last few minutes of it once they found it — but cheered loud enough for the team to double the points scored the entire game within that short time frame!

The party then moved to The Dillard House as the rest of the CCBS families arrived to attend a seminar led by Guest Speaker Merilee Emerson on Transitioning the boys to their next placement beyond CCBS. Merilee is President and Founder of MyMarilee/Fair Pair and is a Person Centered Planning Specialist, working with families  in building structured, individualized life plans for their children
