An inspiring Communities in Schools of Seattle Success Story: "When I got to high school, I had given up. I was skipping school, getting in trouble, and failing my classes. But then I got connected with Communities In Schools and my life turned around. They helped me catch up in my classes and helped my mom get an apartment for me and my two brothers. Most all they helped me see that I could have a future if I worked hard at it. Now I'm in college and I'm going to be somebody."
