“I started high school with a .76 GPA and graduated from Northeast High last spring with a 3.5 GPA. It was a rough road but, with the support of my foster mother and the teachers and counselors at Northeast, I turned my life around. I received several scholarships from the Foundation which are allowing me to fulfill my dream of becoming a college graduate.” – Jessica
