Students Overcome Obstacles to Success
Thomson High School Youth Conference
Pat Farner is the Graduation Coach at Thomson High School in McDuffie County. In January, 2008, she organized a Youth Conference for her students. The conference theme was "Overcoming Obstacles to Success". During the event, students that Pat works with shared the challenges that they face in successfully completing high school education. Their personal strength and determination along with support from families, friends, Thomson High School faculty and Pat, their Graduation Coach, were resources they could call upon to make a difference in successfully reaching education goals.
Thank you to Pat and Thomson High School for providing the videotape from the Youth Conference.
