FEATURE STORY:  ‘She’s a Gem’: Teenager Graduates as Valedictorian After Overcoming Loss, Suffering From Depression

As Passport Academy Charter School celebrates its graduating class, it is especially momentous for valedictorian Alexis McElroy.  The 19-year-old was raised by her grandparents and suffered from depression after her grandfather passed away a few years ago.

“I didn’t want to wake up and go to school,” McElroy said.

Encouraged by her best friend, McElroy enrolled at Passport Academy, which blends in-person and online learning. It was the fresh start she was looking for.

“My grandma pushed me to do good, even with all her health problems and everything,” she said. “She wanted me to finish school, be able to say I did it.”

After maintaining high grades and staying active in school activities, McElroy was named valedictorian of her class.
