Stories from Pace Hillsborough

Shaleand's Story

"I enrolled at Pace because I was failing all my classes, fighting a lot, and skipping school. Things were challenging not only at school but also at home, I lived with my grandmother and three sisters. The staff at Pace saw something in me from the start and they never gave up, eventually I started to see it too. I worked with my counselor on improving my behavior and attitude, I learned how to express my feelings and accept support. I am so happy that after a lot of hard work I earned my high school diploma and will be enrolling in a nursing program to become a registered nurse. My goal is to have a successful career so that I can be the best mom for my son. I am so grateful for all that Pace has done for me."
