Reflections from Jordan:
"CIS has helped me a lot – there were a lot of people who didn’t believe in me – they didn’t think I would be able to graduate. One of them was my mom, but she didn’t mean it in that kind of way – she just thought school wasn’t for me."
"I am really glad I was able to find out about Communities In Schools because they did a lot for me – especially Sinte. I was at a place where my grades were really bad – and he was able to help me get straight and focus. I got my grades up – they were always there for me – supporting me no matter what. I am grateful to them and everything they did for me."
Jordan graduated with the Class of 2020 and has been approached by several colleges with scholarship opportunities. He was also inaugurated into the Carson Honor Society. This distinction celebrates high school seniors served by Communities In Schools that have overcome obstacles and persevered to remain on a path to graduation.
