Student and Volunteer Success Stories

"I started the Aspire class thinking I would go nowhere and now with the help of Mrs. Lauren and everyone, I did it! I have my high school diploma and a certification in basic word and basic excel. I also have a Silver National Readiness Certificate. I am now at Zane State doing Quick start so I can start college!" -Donna H.

"I started my Aspire class with a goal in mind and that was to obtain my GED, at my first class I realized that I could go so much further than just my GED. With that thought in mind, I achieved my High School Diploma. I was also facing several medical conditions such as recovering from a brain operation. I came in feeling defeated from the beginning until Mrs. Lauren and basically everyone in the Aspire program, including the students, gave me every confidence I needed to succeed. Not only did I receive my Diploma, I completed the STNA program and I passed my State Test. Now that I have accomplished my first goal, I am planning on furthering my Education. I'm excited to see how far I can go." -Angel S.
