COLLEGE SUCCESS STORy - BENJAMIN SCOTT, GRADUATE OF THE CHOICE PROGRAM AT EAST GEORGIA STATE COLLEGE, SWAINSBORO, GA
BENJAMIN: I decided to go to CHOICE because I wanted to better my life and my career. Some students might not think that college is an option because of their disability, but it is. To be successful in college, never get behind on assignments, take advantage of all the resources and support and always speak up. Attending CHOICE was the best decision I have made.
BENJAMIN’S MOM: At first, I was afraid to let Benjamin go to CHOICE. He told me about the program, and I knew this was his dream. The people at CHOICE guided him and taught him not only his schoolwork, but also how to be independent. He changed dramatically. At first, he would not speak to you, but now he has grown as a person who has confidence. This experience taught me that just because your child has a disability, it does not mean that they lack potential. You might not be able to see it, but you have to give them a chance to grow, learn and dream.
