Carl just finished his junior year. I had Carl in class both his freshman and sophomore years. I have seen him mature more than any of my other students. He has focused on school and has goals for college and career. He has maintained the necessary requirements for his 21st Century Scholarship and plans to go into the business world after college. He has surrounded himself with good influences despite a lack of consistency at home, and continues to keep his focus on his future.
