“I’m thankful for everything. I’m thankful for our school that helps me so much. [It] lets me learn new things, and it helps others reach for their goals, reach for education. I think this helps me and everyone here accomplish our career goals, but also lead them to a path where they can accomplish and succeed, and that is something everyone should be reaching for,” says Black Pratt, first year student at LSC-Kingwood.
