GROW Student: Leonel

LeonelThanks to the GROW program, many kids are able to complete their education and go on to college. Leonel is one of the amazing students who has been accepted into college. Following his first cycle of classes last fall; it was clear that Leonel was struggling, not just with the field of study (civil engineering), but also with being a resident in Casa Amiga in Colima; being away from home for the first time in his life was a difficult transition.

Leonel quit in great despair at the end of the first fall semester. We stayed in touch with Leonel and encouraged him to try again this year; a different major at a different campus. His high school grades and his perpetual service at the GROW Education Center through his high school years were ample evidence of his potential and his value.

This past July, Leonel took his exam to enter software engineering and was readmitted to the Tecoman campus (allowing him to live at home). So Leonel is back in school and happy.
