Amanda Glover, Managing Director of the Dorsey Schools’ Dearborn campus, and Kim Peck, Senior Vice President of Operations, delivered opening remarks. A number of well-known politicians were in attendance, including Councilwoman Brenda Jones of the Detroit City Council and Alisha Bell, the Wayne County Commissioner. Two awards were presented to Dorsey, including The Spirit of Detroit Award and a Resolution Award on behalf of Wayne County. Although the campus first welcomed students in August, the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce helped facilitate a ribbon-cutting ceremony which made the campus opening official. Guests delighted in delicious food, such as crab rangoon, black bean tacos, cheesecake bites, and miniature éclairs, which was naturally catered by Dorsey Culinary Academy.
