Class of June 2010
Luke V, the Valedictorian of the Graduating Class of 2010, has done a lot since he left The Family Foundation School. When he arrived at the school on November 14, 2008, he did not have the drive to get into a good college, but after working hard in school, he got the results he was looking for. Today, he maintains a solid G.P.A. as a freshman at the University of Scranton. He studies Counseling, Human Services, and Psychology in the honors program. In addition, Scranton is paying for half of his tuition because of the scholarship he earned for his academic achievements.
“There have been a lot of life challenges put in front of me since I left. However, the school taught me how to handle these difficulties,” said Luke. As he deals with the everyday struggles of a first-year college student, Luke continues to have fun just as he did in Betton House. He goes to concerts and he even managed to make it to one on his birthday last month.
He still stays in touch with some of his good friends such as Josh R, Max Z, and Aaron Z. He will always remember the support he got from those three friends. “I will always remember the staff members in Betton House, also. Mike and Robin Ducey, Bill Cordts, and Nanci Newcomb were so important to my transformation.”
He continues to excel as a student and looks forward to visiting the school sometime this summer.
