2008 – BOULDER – Iris Class of 2018
In the fall of 2008, this class of 50 third through sixth grade Dreamers from Boulder Housing Partners' Broadway East Low-income Housing Site was sponsored. The majority of students in this class attend Boulder High School. The Iris Dreamers have begun to graduate and have started college—of those eligible to graduate, 96% have graduated high school. Thanks to a partnership with Boulder Housing Partners, a new community center was built to accommodate this Dreamer Class.
