Stories from Pace Marion

Kyleigh's Story

"I’m Kyleigh and I came to Pace Marion to overcome some challenging obstacles with my education. At public school, I had so much anxiety it would keep me distracted. But once I came to Pace I was able to open up more to my amazing counselor and I was able to make some good friends that shared the same traits as me. I am now almost caught up with all of my credits and I am about to graduate from high school. I plan on going to college and studying to become either an anesthesiologist or neurologist."
