Every year, over 1.2 million students drop out of high school in the United States. That’s a student every 26 seconds – or 7,000 students a day. High school dropouts significantly diminish their chances to secure a good job and a promising future. Moreover, each class of dropouts is responsible for substantial financial and social costs to their communities.
Education is the key to providing our children with the tools and life skills they need to be successful. It is the doorway to a world of possibility. Education empowers our children, It helps them gain confidence, motivation, self-esteem and fosters a “can do attitude.” Education is the key! It can make the difference in our children succeeding or falling by the wayside.
I am inspired by our youth and will do my part to help them grow academically and become successful and productive citizens.
Success is not measured by what a man accomplishes, but by the opposition he has encountered and the courage with which he has maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
