Another class of seniors will graduate from DeLaSalle with Banyan’s support.  Students, parents and families are very grateful for Banyan’s support.   A dynamic team of scholarship sponsors, Higher Ground Scholarship Committee members, Tutors, Banyan staff and community support along with our partnership with DLS staff and administration brings a winning combination.  Congratulations Seniors!  A party was held at Minnehaha Park on Saturday May 11.
