89.9 WJCT is participating in the American Graduate project supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The goal of American Graduate is to reverse the national drop out crisis by identifying and then addressing the factors that cause students to leave school early.
19-year old Andre Williams started kindergarten with the expectation that, 13years later, he would graduate. It may have taken him an extra year but on June 6th, he did, indeed, accomplish that goal.
Getting to this point was anything but a given, however.
