Grad-itude

Recent local graduate has a lot of thanks to share

My name is Jenna Edwards and I never thought I would graduate high school, but thanks to the Online Centre and the teachers here, John and Bruna, I’ve succeeded and so have many others. So congratulations to all the graduates.

This time last year I had no idea where my life was going and had no plans; but now I have plans to start college in September, to become a pharmacy technician and I’m really excited. When I was in school I’ve always had C’s and lower but since I’ve started going to online all I’ve gotten were A’s and B’s. It’s a great place to excel and I want to thank my step-mom for encouraging me to come here.

The online centre is all about going at your own pace, and it’s perfect for people who want to continue their education or who have trouble in public school, or people who don’t have a lot of time on their hands. The teachers here are so supportive and will help you along the way. If you are thinking of joining but are hesitant I strongly encourage you to come here and see how far you can go.

So congratulations to all the grads, the diploma that you receive represents great academic accomplishment and shows all the hard work you’ve put into getting it and I wish you well on the rest of your life’s adventures.

Thank you again family and friends of the grads and teacher for helping us all achieve this great accomplishment.
