Stories from Pace Citrus

Dorothy's Story

“My name is Dorothy, and I am 15. I came to Pace because my grades were bad at the school I was attending. After I was exposed to Covid, I tried to complete assignments on my iPad, but it was a struggle, and I was unable to pass my classes. I came to Pace looking for a new opportunity. Pace has given me the skills that I needed to become a leader and to be a better student. I plan to go back to high school, go on to college, and become a marine biologist.”
