"I'll be going to Normandale College for PSEO. I'll be able to use any of their stuff on campus; I'll be able to use the weight room, the swimming pool, the computer lab, the library -- so basically it's like I'm going to be an official student at Normandale and also be a student at South. I have a lot I can say I'm proud of, but that's something that I really had to push for." #NorthFaceFriday

Daunte Conquers Challenges

Daunte

In 2013, Daunte N. and his family experienced high mobility. But despite the challenges involved with moving and switching schools, Daunte stayed focused on his academics and goals. Through Out-of-School Time summer programming at NAZ Anchor Partner Plymouth Christian Youth Center, Daunte gained one year of growth in reading over the summer.

This third-grader is an exceptionally motivated student, admired not only by his friends, but also by his teacher, Jeremy L. And NAZ Connector Jaton W. is blown away by his resilience, saying that Daunte knows what he needs to do and does it no matter what obstacles are thrown his way.
