Vanguard-Sentinel Career and Technology Centers Board of Education heard a student tell how Sentinel has changed her life.
During a meeting Thursday evening, Paige Webb, a senior in Sentinel's collision repair program and at Old Fort High School, said she had been a troublemaker. She said she has learned administrators know what they are talking about. She said she also has learned she has a future, and it will be a good future if she works hard.
"(Sentinel has) helped us all with our futures," she said.
Webb delivered a speech she is to give as part of the state SkillsUSA contest in Columbus next weekend.
