"You were my motivation to keep going, how much you were there for me and how much hope you had for me to have a better life for myself...that was my motivation to go on with high school." - Jared O'Neil, Grants Pass High School Class of 2020 and recipient of our Beat the Odds Scholarship
For National School Counseling Week, Jared told his counselor, Ben Coulter how much his support really meant. Watch the heartwarming video now:
Hard work, motivation, and support. That's how Oregon students who face extraordinary obstacles on the path to graduation beat the odds. We're grateful to all the incredible counselors who clear the path for our students. At Stand, we're working to ensure every single student gets the support Jared did.
