Blazing a New Trail | Blair’s Story

At 17, Blair found herself standing at the crossroads of her life. The road she’d traveled was one of trauma, pain, and uncertainty. It wreaked havoc on her schoolwork, her relationships, and her self-worth. She desperately wanted to find change, relief, and hope.

Because of the loving support that Thornwell receives, Blair found that lifeline at Thornwell this past summer. Blair has always had big dreams, especially with her education. She didn’t have the confidence to believe in the power of those dreams until she was enrolled in Read Right, Thornwell’s reading empowerment program.

Thornwell’s Read Right program helps to turn poor readers into excellent readers in a short amount of time. As Blair and her tutor pored over the pages using different techniques to better connect to the story, she experienced a change in both her abilities and belief in herself.

Thornwell believes that all children deserve a bright future through academic success. Because of this, Blair is making incredible progress! Foundations of hope for youth are created every day!

Today, Blair tackles her schoolwork with unwavering dedication. She’s soon to graduate from the Read Right program, three full grade levels from where she started. Her next stop? Reaching her ultimate goal of earning a high school diploma!

The generosity of donors helps to make Blair’s healing possible. Through generous support, Blair is told that she is worthy of love, an education, and a future beyond her wildest dreams!
