Featured Student

Antonio Ward, Class of 2013

Antonio Ward came to WLC in July 2012. He had struggled with reading for as long as he could remember, and after falling further and further behind, he dropped out of school in the 10th grade. Antonio was placed in a Just Words class, and immediately began to shine. His success didn’t come easily. After attending classes for 13 months without missing a single day, Antonio has graduated from WLC in August 2013.
