Progress: anonymous student

Students from Gradway

"Wanted to boast in my boy real quick"

Thoughts from a Gradway Coach about a 2015-2016 at risk student.

"Wanted to boast in my boy real quick,

He has been working very hard in and out of the classroom. Throughout this entire year he has shown tremendous resilience in life and has been a wonderful encouragement to me and the other students around him. He has had plenty happen in life to discourage him yet he has remained steadfast in pursuing his dream to graduate high school....and make it to college and pursue a solid job from there.

I am very proud of him for many reasons, but the main one is that he is becoming his own man and is standing up for his convictions and values and is not listening to the negative voices around him telling him that he can't do what he wants to do."
