Gov. Hassan applauds Eagle Academy graduates in Conway
Fifteen students completed the requirements for graduation at Eagle Academy this year, and 13 of those students — joined by five GED recipients — were able to attend the May 30 graduation ceremony in Loynd Auditorium at Kennett High School.
The academy offers an alternative for those students who might otherwise drop out of high school. Classes are held during after-school hours. An adult GED prep program is held for those adults and young people who have already left the school system.
The governor, who met with students briefly before the ceremony, noted that all the students had some obstacles in their lives, and that going forward they will still have challenges.
Become an adult who helps young people, she advised the students. You could be the adult in that kid’s corner, she said.
After the diplomas were handed out, Hassan, who had met with the class before the ceremony, made sure she found Michaela Glennie and her family — including Glennie’s 1-year-old son, Colton — in the crowd.
She became pregnant at 15, she told the audience. She became a mother at 16, during her junior year in high school, and the responsibility for another life made regular high school very challenging for her.
