From Neah Bay High School
An 11th grade student has been in foster care for the past seven years. She has been moved around to a number of different families, but she maintains a good attitude towards school and strives to complete her coursework. However, the disruption of her life at home has caused her to lag behind. In an effort to have her graduate with her class, she needs to attend summer school. The funds from InvestED have enabled her to enroll in a correspondence course to secure the credits she needs to graduate on time.
