Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Success Story:Ben Kottonbrook dropped out of high school due to the bullying. The experience left him with classroom anxiety and discouraged him from enrolling in other schools. He and his family gave home school a try, but little progress was made. Ben went to work and found the low-wage jobs unfulfilling. He hoped for a better future,but without a diploma, the future looked bleak. Ben's mother heard about ReadWest Adult Literacy Program. In March 2017, 20-year-old Ben registered for one-to-one tutoring at ReadWest with a High School Equivalency (HSE) as his goal. He was matched with Volunteer Tutor Sierra Jarrett. They met for one year preparing Ben for each section of the HSE. At 21 years old, on April 23, 2018, Ben completed the last part of the HSE and received High School Equivalency Certificate. Ben is a bright, gifted young man who just needed the one-to-one help a ReadWest Tutor supplied help him to complete his high school education. Today, Ben is seeking higher education in a vocational program at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque.
