On Oct. 10 Plano Independent School District, along with city officials, held the official unveiling of the naming rights to the Charmaine Solomon Adult Transition Center. In 2017 Plano ISD purchased 1631 Dorchester Drive from My Possibilities in preparation for the Adult Transition Center, or Solomon Center.
The Dorchester Drive location previously served as home to My Possibilities prior to opening its Campus for Higher Learning on Mapleshade Lane. My Possibilities provides continuing education, vocational training and job placement for adults with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (IDD.) Similar to My Possibilities, The Solomon Center provides vocational education for adults with IDD after high school graduation.
“What an absolute honor to receive such recognition,” said Charmaine. “This journey all began with my son, Kyle, to find something sustainable for him once he left Plano ISD.”
The evening began with remarks from Superintendent Sara Bonser, School Board President Tammy Richards, Plano City Council Member Kayci Prince, Adult Transition Center Director Shelley Crowder and Honoree Charmaine Solomon. Shortly thereafter was the sign unveiling, self-guided facility tours and refreshments. The self-guided facility tours featured six different classrooms showcasing the various work and programming The Solomon Center offers. During the tour, students explained the curriculum and skill sets taught within the various classrooms.
“What a future our children have,” said Charmaine. “What a privilege to have programming available such as the Adult Transition Center and My Possibilities.”
