“The best thing I ever did for myself” is how April Cannon describes earning her high school diploma. “My life is now falling into place and it (the diploma) really boosted my self-esteem,” says the Bridgeville resident.
April left high school at the age of 17. After several years of struggling, she decided she wanted to be a better role model for her seven-year-old daughter, Anyla.
Becoming a student at the James H. Groves Adult High School was April’s first step toward building a better life for herself and her daughter. The journey took eight months. The last two months required four nights a week traveling to classes at either the Groves’ Woodbridge or Seaford sites. Finally, she walked across the stage on August 15 to receive her high school diploma.
