Four years ago, Lawyer B. arrived at Wedgwood Christian Services without family, a future or confidence. Today he is a smiling high-school graduate with rewarding full-time employment, a spectacular work ethic, specific plans to purchase a home for his future family who says a prayer of thanks every morning.
“If I never came to Wedgwood I know I’d be dead or in jail right now.” He said quietly as he stared down at the brick pavers in front of the Nagel Chapel.
“I learned so much at Wedgwood like how to focus and not make excuses, that everyone learns and works differently and that getting feedback isn’t a bad thing but that it can help you get better,” he shared during a recent campus visit.
“The staff at Wedgwood loved me like my parents should have,” said Lawyer. “They are still like family to me.”
