Mother of 2 thanks SWBOCES after earning her HSE
Lisa Wilson-Patrick, a 40-year-old mother of two, is thankful to SWBOCES for allowing her to set a positive example for her children, ages 6 and 15.
Wilson-Patrick said she struggled with math while in high school. Eventually she left school to work full time.
"I realized that that was not the best choice for me when I started to have children," she says. "It was not easy to help my children with homework, since I did not complete my High School. So I decided to go further with my education and become a good example for my children."
She enrolled in HSE prep classes at St Gabriel’s School in New Rochelle through the Center for Adult & Community Services. Working closely with teacher Arlene Novich, she recently obtained her High School Equivalency diploma.
"Thank you to SWBOCES," says Wilson-Patrick, "and to my teacher Arlene for believing in me!"
