Class of 2018

Senior Lizzette and her mentor Mayra have been matched for four years at Holmes High School, and the two of them have gone through many exciting, as well as challenging, life experiences together. Lizzette describes her mentor Mayra as smart, nice, and respectful. “She gives me good insights about keeping on task, and setting goals and priorities. She listens to me, wants to see me succeed, and helps me learn things they don’t teach in school like the practical aspects of my future career. She motivates me by setting a good example. She always listens to me and tells me to never give up on the things I love to do.”

Lizzette plans to attend Gateway Community & Technical College this fall.
