In Their Own Words: Clara Loose

Rhema Thompson

This week marks a milestone for many high school seniors across Duval County: Graduation. 

As schools around the district celebrate, we'll bring you the personal reflections on learning and growing in the district from a different graduate each day this week.

Tuesday was commencement day for seniors at Robert E. Lee High School. Among the graduating class is Clara Loose who came a long way from the scared freshman, just out of home-school, she once was.
She shared the insight she's gained along the way with WJCT's Rhema Thompson.

This story is part of American Graduate - a public media initiative made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities implement and identify solutions to address the high school dropout crisis.
