Janae came to CCA in the Fall of the 2017 school year. She was referred by our ministry partner Viola's House, a maternity home for homeless teenagers. With only a few credits left, Janae was determined to return to school and complete her high school education. She was especially motivated to finish before the arrival of her daughter Amara in November.
Fierce and feisty, Janae made everything lively in her time at CCA! If we ever needed a laugh, we knew we could count on her. Janae was also a great example of diligence, as she always worked persistently. Even as she was in labor, Janae had her computer in front of her, working on her APEX classes. She actually completed her last assignment just before giving birth to baby Amara!
Now, Janae has transitioned into motherhood and is working at the Joule Hotel. We are so proud of her and how she has taken advantage of her second chance. While we'd be excited to have any student be the 100th graduate in the history of Cornerstone Crossroads Academy, we're so glad that it was Janae!
