90 students graduated this morning from Rosenwald High School. Many of those students faced several obstacles and are happy that they were able to overcome.
One such student is Valerie Klessig. The Rosenwald graduate was proud to walk across the stage and have her 3-month old daughter watching from the crowd.
"It didn't take 12 years, it took 13. I dropped out, went back to school pregnant, and finished...and it was tough, but it was worth it."
While Valerie doesn't have concrete plans for what she wants to study, she hopes to attend Gulf Coast State College in the fall, "I already signed up. I just have to wait for my transcripts and then go to school hopefully in the fall."
