See update at the bottom of the posting.
I thought you might like to know how our 9 graduates from last year are doing. I’m not giving last names on purpose.
Kevaughn- accepted at Belize Rural High School in Burrell Boom
Kylah-accepted at Excelsior HS, Belize City–Came by yesterday in her uniform.
Michael-accepted at Gwen Liz HS, Belize City
Tyrese-accepted at Global Outreach, a residential Trade school near Belmopan
Elroy-accepted at Stan Creek Ecumenical HS, Stan Creek
Mario-accepted at Gwen’s Liz HS, Belize City [went to summer school and grumbled about it 😉 ]
Shamar #1- had a bad attitude when he was interviewed by Global Outreach. Probably will not attend HS. Is currently working for his father who is a fisherman.
Shamar #2—on the waiting list at Global Outreach. Stopped by the school on his bicycle yesterday to see if we knew anything about the waiting list. We are hoping that, since Shamar #1 will not be going, Shamar #2 will get to take his spot.
Stephan–accepted at Excelsior HS, Belize City
On a side note, two other students did not complete the year with us.
Calbert, whose mother moved him out of town to avoid some gang ‘stuff’ was accepted at Orange Walk Technical HS, Orange Walk
Kenneth was sent home from Friends School during the year last year for being constantly disruptive. We did however help him apply to Global Outreach where he was accepted.
Shamar #1 has been accepted at Gwen Liz and is coming by this morning for a transcript.
Shamar #2 has been accepted at Global in Shamar #1’s spot.
Brandon, who was a review (2-year) student last year, had been accepted at Global but came back this fall as a prep student. He got into trouble the very first day, and Ms Candi disciplined him. So he has decided to go to Global after all. (irony anyone?)
