January 22, 2015

To celebrate the end of the semester, we wanted to do a special edition of OUR STORY this week and highlight one of the hardest working students in our district. LaVondra's story should inspire us all. 

LaVondra enrolled at Daniels Learning Center in the Alternative Education Program at the beginning of this school year and only needed English IV to graduate with the 22-Credit Alternative Diploma. But once she reached her 22 credits, her sights shifted. She met with an admissions counselor at Wilson Community College (WCC) and decided to add three additional courses that would result in her achieving a 28-Credit Diploma and allow her to attend WCC. 

On Jan. 5, she completed her high school classes, but her transcript wouldn't be official until Jan. 20. This was after the deadline for spring registration at WCC. Determined to make her dream a reality, LaVondra, along with her mom and her support team from Daniels, met with the WCC registrar to share her intentions and select classes. The next day, the administration at her base school sent a letter confirming that they would make sure her official transcript was ready in time to meet the registration deadline. Everything worked out!

On Jan. 8, LaVondra began taking classes as a WCC student. She is to be commended for this amazing accomplishment and for setting her sights high. Special thanks as well to the staff at Daniels for supporting her along the way. We wish her the very best!
