Student Profile: Meet Camisha

AKRON, OH—Not unlike many of our students, Camisha had seemingly overwhelming barriers to success and high school graduation. On many occasions, Camisha’s teachers would make Home Visits to look for her when she was absent from school. And her mother—who cared for her grandchild during the day so Camisha could go to school—frequently called the school to check on her. One day, Camisha’s mother called and found out that Camisha had not been attending. Her mother became fed up and told Camisha she would not care for the child any longer. With her back up against the wall, Camisha committed to finishing school and getting her High School Diploma. On her last day of school, after she finished her last …

Student Profile: Meet Elias

COLUMBUS, OH—Meet Elias. Elias is a 4th grade student at Buckeye Preparatory Academy in Columbus. He is a very bright, witty, and self-sufficient young man. He came to Buckeye Prep in January 2015 after being kicked out of his previous school for bad behavior, his mother explained in our very first meeting—which we were quite surprised to learn because that same young man just shook our hands, introduced himself, and was just as polite as could be. After our initial meeting, when Elias integrated into his classes, he did, at first, have a hard time accepting and following our rules. However, this was very short-lived. Elias quickly found that he had a team of teachers who cared about him and were going to do whatever it took to get him interested …
