CIE in 2012: A look back
12/19/2012Join us as we take a look back at some of our top stories from 2012.
What we enjoy about these stories is that they tell the personal stories of our students and how their experiences with CIE have changed their lives for the better. They also show the strides CIE has made in 2012 to create innovative educational programs and initiatives.
We look forward with great excitement to 2013, to continue to share our student’s success stories and to continue creating educational opportunities for people at any point in their life, in Texas and beyond.
