Lanphier, Southeast Students "Making the Grade"
Students at Lanphier and Southeast high schools got a chance to meet with mentors from around the community today.
The Making the Grade conference happened this morning at both high schools. It focuses on student achievement.
Each student gets to meet with community volunteers and school vendors one-on-one to talk about the student's goals, academic challenges, and plans to improve throughout the school year.
"If you have bad grades and you want to improve, this will help you improve a lot," Lanphier freshman Jurnee Holloway said. "You just have to understand what they're talking about, and you'll be on your way."
This is the third year Lanphier has offered this program, and the first year for Southeast. Officials there hope for similar positive results as Lanphier has seen.
