Without a new program to help fifth-year high school seniors graduate, Taylor Johnson doubts she would have earned her diploma.
“It was tough still being in school when all my other friends had graduated,” the 19-year-old said of attending Greenbrier High School during the first semester of the school year. “I felt like I didn’t belong; that I was out of place.”
Johnson failed to earn enough credits to graduate on time. To help her and others in similar situations, the Columbia County Alternative School started the Save Our Seniors program.
