Through our state’s voucher program and scholarships, families are able to control the type of education their children have and possibly change their trajectory in life and our school is richly diverse. One of the students that I helped navigate the college search process actually testified in Nashville advocating for school vouchers. His childhood had been tumultuous, climaxing when learning that his father passed away in his senior year of high school. Through the opportunities he was given to be in a small tight-knit community, he grew into a wonderful leader and scholar. He is now entering his senior year of college at TSU.
