LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commemorating  the 26th Anniversary of New York
City Outward Bound Schools

WHEREAS, It is the sense of  this  Legislative  Body  to  recognize  and
commend  those  institutions  of  commitment  and high achievement whose
purpose and endeavors prove a dedication to the pursuit of excellence in
the education of the youth of this noble Empire State; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commem-
orate the 26th Anniversary of New York City Outward Bound Schools; and
  WHEREAS, Founded more  than  a  quarter-century  ago,  New  York  City
Outward  Bound  Schools began to provide educational programming to help
students cultivate their academic capabilities, improve their  self-con-
fidence,  and  develop their leadership skills; since then, thousands of
young people of different backgrounds have discovered  their  capability
to achieve more than they thought possible, individually and collective-
ly; and
  WHEREAS,  Every  New  Yorker  can  celebrate  the  anniversary of this
remarkable nonprofit organization, because it fosters academic  achieve-
ment,  community and character; each year, its network of public expedi-
tionary learning schools set unprecedented marks of accomplishment,  and
its  students  experience a world of exploration and adventure that they
might have never known,  preparing  them  for  success  in  college  and
beyond; and
  WHEREAS,  New York City Outward Bound Schools strengthens the State by
stressing  the  perseverance,  teamwork,  leadership,  and  goal-setting
required to overcome obstacles, and to discover its potential for ascen-
dancy; and
  WHEREAS,  The New York City Outward Bound Schools are proudly aware of
their distinguished past, eager to fulfill their present  commitment  to
parents,  students  and  the  community,  and  planning  with vision and
purpose for the ebb and swell of growth and change they  will  encounter
in the years to come; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 26th Anniversary of New York City Outward Bound Schools;
and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to New York City Outward Bound Schools.
