Takema W. -Always felt she had a purpose at MECHS

Takema was a MECHS graduate from the Hall Site. Takema is now enrolled at Lanier Technical College where she plans to get an Early Childhood Education degree. Takema credits her success to her Mentor and the staff at the Hall Site who helped her every step of the way and never let her give up. Takema said, "Someone was always there to greet me when I walked in the door and I felt welcomed each and every day as if I had a purpose." Takema was able to work a part-time job while she was taking classes at MECHS. She enjoyed the self-paced aspect of Mountain Ed because she could learn at a pace that was comfortable for her needs. Takema also enjoyed the tutoring available at MECHS that helped her as she needed it to never let her fail. 

Kayla G. - MECHS 2019 Valedictorian

Kayla Gray enrolled at MECHS after getting behind in school due to a tragic accident in Costa Rica that left her in a wheelchair for months. Struggling to get caught back up in her coursework, she decided to transfer to MECHS where she could work at her own pace and not get punished for missing some school days.  Kayla quickly accelerated above her peers and began Dual Enrollment at the University of North Georgia. Kayla graduated a semester early and already has enough college credits to be a junior. Kayla plans to get a degree at UNG in Mandarin, and possibly another foreign language, to pursue a career in mission work.
