“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Every single student has a story to tell you and on July 12, 2017, they shared their story and appreciation for the support we’ve given them to graduate High School despite various challenges to get there.
Our Destination Graduation has a success rate of 90% and it is geared to assist high school students who face challenges, are at risk of not graduating, or have multiple barriers.
This year 137 students graduated from 15 High Schools within our five county region. Additionally, we had 160 students employed this summer with 72 business employers who partner with us to offer them employment.
The article from the News-Press by Casey Logan “At-risk students rise, thank Destination Graduation mentors” gives more instight on what our students felt on that day.
We are so proud of each one of you and remember that the sky is NOT the limit, you can reach the stars and accomplish anything your mind sets out to do!
