Staying focused on goals
“I’m trying to be the first person in my family to go to college," said freshman Neycer Vasquez.
When Neycer isn’t in class, you’ll most likely find him out on the football field at Stafford High School.
He knows the power of people who believe in him. That support, fuels his desire to stay focused on his goals.
“If I didn't have Stafford Junction, I’d probably be in trouble all the time,” he said.
Since Neycer started going to after school tutoring, he’s started to work on his grades.
“That’s important to him now. He’s starting to think about going to college now. And that’s started rubbing off on his sister,” said Minor, of Stafford Junction. “Because now she sees what he’s doing and she wants to follow in his footsteps. He’s making us all proud.”
“They are always there for me,” Neycer said. “I can have someone to rely on.”
