English At Large (EAL) recently held a Learner Graduation event to celebrate the achievements of local immigrants enrolled in its Tutoring Program.  Hosted at the Lexington Historic Depot, the ceremony honored the efforts of 26 learner graduates from 8 different communities who completed more than 100 hours of English language instruction through weekly meetings with their volunteer tutors.    

Learner graduates participating in the ceremony include Lexington residents Boeun Kim, tutored by English At Large volunteer Susan Siroky; and Ha Kyoung Lee, tutored by Maureen Bennani.
