January 09, 2019

Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) and One Step Beyond, a day program for students with intellectual disabilities, celebrated 14 students during an awards ceremony Dec. 6 at the Estrella Conference Center.

The students, who completed the course Introduction to Windows/Microsoft Office, received certificates of completion.

Ivy Avanzado, who taught the course, said she’s seen the students get frustrated and overwhelmed, but has also seen them learn to collaborate with other students, manage their time, and understand complex concepts.

“These students never give up,” she said.
