Soon-to-be @TCWTitans grad Adriana is heading into the health field. “My dad is really sick, so I felt like I wanted to help others. A lot of physicians have helped my dad, so I would like to change people’s lives, even a little bit.” #ClassOf2019 @tcw2019 @TCWPrincipal pic.twitter.com/0gcnh4y5UW

🎓 She made it. Monet Oppong is graduating from @tcwtitans after coming from behind and taking 12 classes in one year – nearly twice the usual amount – to get enough credits for her diploma. After years of personal setbacks and distractions – health issues, home life, friends – Monet came into senior year owning up to her past mistakes and determined to graduate. A GED wouldn’t do. She and her counselor Ms. Brewster devised a rigorous course plan for her senior year, including online classes. “They called it a Hail Mary pass.” Many didn’t think she could do it, but she was determined to prove them wrong. With resilience and a lot of prayer, she did. 🙌 And now she’s set on getting into her dream school @olddominionu and getting a fresh start, no matter what or how long it takes. “College is a privilege. It’s not just given to you. I want to show them I’m worthy of it.”
“I think that playing a sport and coming to school at the same time is beneficial. It will be hard at first, but it will definitely help you.” –@SouleyemaneS #TitansRising @TCWilliamsAD @tcwboys @TCWTitans @TCWSports @AlexandriaSoc #ClassOf2019 #EveryStudent pic.twitter.com/tzFXHe8L3M

“I was able to become friends with and interact with people from all over the world in my four years at T.C. That is something that I will honestly carry with me my entire life.” @TCWTitans #TitansRising #EveryStudent pic.twitter.com/PYVR8f3d5L
