There was a time when Audrea Powell was considering dropping out of school.
Sheâ€™s now a senior at Starkville High School, but she said she previously attended a different school where she had low grades and was struggling to succeed.
â€śI met someone when I first moved here, and they helped me get my grades up,â€ť Powell said. â€śI really was thinking about dropping out and getting my GED, but now my grades are up, I have As and Bs, and I plan on going to beauty school.â€ť
