My youngest child, Venita Williams has paid most of her way through college. She's enrolled at TSU and working 2 jobs. After 6 years this is the last year left. She was determined to prove that the system was wrong about her. Diagnosed with a learning disability, in the 2nd grade. I was told by everyone in the school system that she would never graduate from high school, and will never comprehend. With a lot of praying. I kept her in school year round all the way to the 6th grade. Put a book in her hand every chance I got. People in my church would tutor her for free. I was just trying to get her through high school, she decided in the 10th grade that she wanted more out of life. She worked hard and moved from Resource classes, to regular classes. She graduated in 2005 and her major is music. I'm now on disability and she lives with me to save money. She can not receive a grant this year. After trying to get a scholarship and getting turn down for a laon. I'm asking for help, to help her dreams and goals come true. Thank You, in advance for your help.
