An Inspiring Graduation Story

Raised by her grandmother after her mother was sentenced  to life in prison for murder, 18 year old Kierra Lee overcame medical problems  and financial struggles  to graduate as the valedictorian of  the 2009 Jack Yates Senior High School class.


She has been awarded more than $80.000 in scholarships.

 Kierra plans to attend Texas A&M University and major in sociology.

Congratulations Kierra and Best of Luck!
