Road to Success UpdateThe Road to Success (RTS) program has reached 375 GEDs to date, with 8 students graduating in May. We have a 97% positive outcome since the beginning of the program. This month, RTS had its graduation ceremony, which is shared with the Flagler Technical College. On May 28th, we held our joint graduation ceremony with Flagler Technical College. This year, we had 43 eligible graduates who could walk across the stage in front of family and friends. Our student success class (based upon entrepreneurs), which is funded through CareerSource, ended. The students had more guest speakers talk about how they became successful, lectures/activities, and were interviewed on the Flagler Health Matters radio show.
