Highlight on GMC Student Shonese Holmes

on Thursday, 11 December 2014

Shonese Holmes dropped out of high school because of a pile-up of outstanding unpaid waivers when she was in her senior year, just four credits away from graduating. But I really wanted to go to school, Shonese sighs. I have always been in school, ever since 94, when I dropped out. Ive struggled a lot trying to get my GED. I took the test like four times. This was the main thing I was always wishing I could do get my diploma. Over the years, Shonese has moved from city to city, GED program to GED program. Nothing was working.

Spotlight on GMC Student Rahim Hill

on Sunday, 30 November 2014

Rahim Hill is a newly enrolled student at Gary Middle College, an alternative high school that offers a second chance for people of all ages to go back to school and earn their diploma. At 19, Rahim is younger than most GMC students. But he reflects on his journey and realizations hes made in the past like a much older man. Parents tell us all the time, stay in school, do this, Rahim notes. But as teenagers, we look at them as being over-protective, and dont realize that they went through the same thing. And thats why theyre working hard, trying to do all this to help us. I understand that now. I learned.

Omar Musinovic found Gary Middle College on the internet and has been attending as a 10th grader since November 2013.
