My class did an activity aligned with Indiana Standards showing skills of communication, social and multiply decimals and adding and subtracting. I wanted to give them an activity that related to a real world experience. Our motivational speaker name was Cynthia Thompson who was a reporter for a newspaper in Indiana.

Only 19, Aliyah Richardson has always had an independent streak. On Saturday, she took the SAT exam, then put on a cap and gown for commencement exercises at the Gary Middle College.  The Gary resident is now planning to leave home for college, along with her two children.

 Three years ago, Richardson became pregnant from a casual relationship with a male no longer in her life. "I met someone through friends and it just kind of happened," she said.

On Saturday, June 6, 2015 at the 21st Century Charter School at Gary High School Graduation, two teenage girls walked down the aisle with their High School Diploma in hand – already having been awarded their Associate’s Degree from Ivy Tech Community College several weeks prior.

GARY | The 21st Century Charter School's preschool program is one of more than 40 in Lake County that have been approved to be an On My Way Pre-K provider. It is the only charter school in Lake County to have its preschool program chosen, according to the school.

GARY | Many Gary Middle College graduates had their parents in the stands cheering for them Saturday, but Dominique Hannah had one sitting with him wearing her own cap and gown.  "When I went to enroll my boys here, I learned not just students but adults could enroll," Tewhonna Hannah said.  Tewhonna said she attended college, but was missing a few high school credits. So, she decided to enroll in classes with Dominique.

GARY | Joseph Harris stood in his cap and gown Saturday afternoon and hugged his father as tears streamed down both of their cheeks.  "I'm going to the Army June 23," Harris said. "I'm not going to have much time with anyone before then." Harris was among the 30 graduates of 21st Century Charter School in Gary. His father, Jean Harris, said the teen held down two jobs while earning his diploma.  "It was a rough journey," mother Joyce Harris said. "We stayed on him to make sure he got his education."
