D2 Center Youth Academic Navigator (YAN) Evelia Gutiérrez shares her story on The Landscape from the Omaha Community Foundation. Below is a brief excerpt; you can listen to Evelia’s powerful story in its entirety here.
Congratulations to the following students who earned their high school diploma between September — December, 2018. These students had to overcome various and sometimes many obstacles, but they persisted and were able to achieve that milestone and walk across the commencement stage. We are so proud of you and all your hard work.
