On June 23, The Foundation School of Montgomery County commencement speaker and alumni, Rajon Jackson, reflected on his time at The Foundation Schools by commending the staff for not letting him internalize the negativity which surrounded him.
“I was labeled the bad kid, a trouble maker and not smart…So, since I heard those things all the time I believed all of it to be true. However, they (the staff) knew I had the tools to make it and they reminded me all of the time.”
We are so proud of our alumni and his abilities to face his challenges with success!
