We Did It!
This was not an easy road for the five. Circumstances and the difficulties of life became a barrier in efforts to finish High School at the age when most graduate. But they all persevered, and at long last, received that coveted diploma. Some were in their 30's, others in their 40's, but that didn't matter – it was as if they were 18 that day!
The valedictory address was given by a Mom, who shared that her desire to be a positive role model for her daughter was part of her motivation to finish High School.
Congratulations to all the graduates. Your day was an encouragement to all of us!
