Gary Middle College: A Place for Success!

Gary Middle College is a place of transformation for many students, including Awanii Nicholson, a 32 year old student who decided to return to school and complete her High School and Associate’s Degrees last May. Awanii enrolled because she wanted to fulfill her dream of opening up her own day care, and make clear to her own children the importance and value of education.

Part of Awanii’s success has been her membership in the poetry club, Poetry in Motion, at Gary Middle College, run by the English teacher Ms. Nora Glenn.

Fred Green contends he understands the "school-to-prison pipeline" firsthand.

Green, a student at Gary Middle College, was one of half a dozen panelists who participated in a public forum at Indiana University Northwest focusing on the school-to-prison pipeline and its effect on black youths in Northwest Indiana.
