 Kendall Christopher joined the program in the summer of 2017 as a freshman and has been working consistently since. Summer did not slow her down and she does a great job on her projects and is very thorough in her work. Kendall’s attendance is amazing and is driven to succeed in this program. Kendall has earned over 1.2 credits during the month of August alone! Great job Kendall!

Kendall’s parents/ guardians are Jamie Christopher (mom), and Donna Thomas (grandmother). Kendall is determined to finish the program and get ready for the next chapter in her life. She does an awesome job with the communication piece and her work is excellent.
