Stories from Pace Manatee

Kylie's Story

"My name is Kylie and I am a proud Pace girl. I was 14 when I started at Pace but really, I was the only grown-up in my family. Being in the foster care system and having the responsibility of raising my 5 siblings, school could never be a priority for me. At Pace, I could just come to school and be me. My counselor helped me understand the importance of school and made sure that I showed up for myself. I’m proud to say that I’m the first person in my family with a High School Diploma and working to pursue a nursing degree!"
