We think our grads are pretty rad!

Destination Diploma luncheon_2016 May 24_BlogPageUnited Way of Tarrant County (UWTC) would like to congratulate the students who graduated this year as a result of our LEARN WELL initiative. They join the 788 students who graduated in 2015, bringing us one step closer to our goal of helping 8,000 students at risk of dropping out to graduate on time by the year 2020. But more important is the step that these students are taking toward a brighter future.

Following in their footsteps are students like Jada Johnson, Brittany West, Tiarra Polk and Mahogany Donahue, who participated in Crowley ISD’s Destination Diploma program. Destination Diploma supports ninth and 10th graders and their families to ensure they stay on track for graduation. This strategy involves caring professionals who act as both a support system and a safety net to help students get what they need to succeed. As of June 6, these girls are now juniors at Crowley High School.

Many Tarrant County high schools like Crowley are partnering with UWTC to ensure their students’ success. Eastern Hills, Arlington Heights, Carter-Riverside, South Hills, Southwest, Trimble Technical, Western Hills, and O. D. Wyatt High Schools are all part of our LEARN WELL initiative. Hundreds of students have participated since 2014.

UWTC is proud of the accomplishments of these students, and thankful to the donors and volunteers who made their success possible. Caps off to you!
