Joshua had given up. He knew he wasn’t going to graduate school with his friends, so he dropped out.

Then his dad heard about Aloma High School’s evening session. He told Joshua he’d give him a job at the family AC Repair business if Joshua agreed to go back to school. It was the motivation he needed.

Joshua was 17 years old when he enrolled in 9th grade at Aloma.

Working full time during the day and attending school at night, he found new hope. Within two years, he graduated and even went on to a Career and Technical school for HVAC repair. Because someday, Joshua’s going to take on the family business.

Because no matter what, he’s not giving up.
