Student Success Stories
“When I was in 8th grade I knew I had a passion and fascination with everything about criminal justice including forensics, criminology, courts, etc. I remember going into my sophomore year and having the opportunity to take a criminal justice course offered at Hardin County High School. I was thrilled! I took Criminal Justice up until the end of my junior year, and by that point, I realized I had a very strong passion for it as a potential career path. Criminal Justice III was a dual credit class where I had the opportunity to take a state exam. With a lot of studying and preparation, I was able to pass the test which gave me 3 hours of college credit. Recently, I decided I wanted to get some real world experience and behind the scenes of what it was like to be a lawyer. I approached my WAPP representative at HCHS, and within one hour, she came back with news that she had found an opportunity for me. I was speechless! My dream was becoming true. WAPP is a wonderful program for students who are needing and seeking a job, especially for those with big goals in life like myself. I now have a position at a local law office in Savannah, living part of my dream. I can not thank Mrs. Bellis May, Officer Frazier, and Ben Harmon’s Law Office enough for helping me achieve my goals and making my dreams come true!”
“I was working at a local fast food location but was very stressed and everyone around me could tell I wasn’t doing well. A concerned teacher had reached out as well as Mrs. Bellis. Mrs. Bellis let me know of several jobs that were available and reached out to Central Bank on my behalf. On the very next week, I landed a job that I didn’t realize was possible, and I couldn’t have done it without her help. Initially, it was beyond my comfort zone but she prepared me for the transition. I could not be more grateful for her help!
