Sam SeAlumni_Sentongontongo, Class of 2013
“Entering my junior year, my potential was under question. With a lackluster GPA, an undeveloped work ethic, and a vac-uous résumé, the notion that I would grow up to be a statistic was well-supported. However, this assertion was not true—I am a unique child with great potential, but for my years at my previous high school, I just had not been in an environment conducive to my scholarly development. Junior year needed to be the turning point, and my future hinged on it. By the grace of God, the PSM experience facilitated a dramatic turnaround helping me get to where I am now.”
