Avatar!




With all of the hard work the boys are doing at the ranch with their level sheets, school, therapy, clubs, sports etc. Travis and Brigham decided to invite 12 boys from each campus to participate in an activity last night, and set some goals with the students. Travis and Brigham spoke on the importance of striving to be more than "Mediocre" with whatever they do in life. The students all participated in the discussion and set some goals to work hard and internalize what they are learning at DRA. After the discussion, we showed AVATAR (which the students were WAY excited about) and provided some treats. The boys had fun interacting and enjoyed the evening.

We all know they LOVE chocolate!
                            Most of them were so into the movie they didn't notice I was taking pictures!

Music Video "Take One"


At Diamond Ranch we're fortunate to have some extremely talented musicians. Drew and Ben have been a popular "Duo" and have been requested to perform at many of our graduations. Stephen, our amazingly talented videographer has been spending some time with our students making some music videos. Travis took Drew and Ben down to St.George to meet with Stephen and film a music video in various locations. Keep checking the blog for the music video "Elias", it will be posted once Stephen is done editing and has put all of the finishing touches on it!
