Student and Volunteer Success Stories
CVABE helped me achieve my goals. They helped me see how strong I was and helped me see I can do whatever I put my mind to. Being able to finally have my diploma is the best feeling ever. I am so very proud of me and I hope my family is, too! I want my children to know you can do whatever you set your mind to. My next step is reaching my new goal of being an RN! If I can do it so can you! Angela
I had a chance to make good money, and dropped out of school in 11th grade. 10 years later I started thinking about getting my diploma, but I still didn't need it, or so I thought. Now, another 10 years later, and I can't do manual labor much longer. The jobs I want require a high school diploma, so I called CVABE. They were welcoming, and I felt comfortable instantly. Now I'm on my way to a high school diploma, thinking about a college degree, and definitely a new career. Josh
