(4/16/2005, DENVER, CO.) Diana, 24, went to Denver Public Schools her whole life - going to TJ High School and then Manuel High School, until she got pregnant in 1997 (sophomore year) with her first child, Junior, now 6. She dropped out and finally decided that for a better future for herself and her children (also has a four-year-old son), a GED would help her get into college and to have more choices professionaly. She also feels a sense of personal satisfaction now that she has completed the GED program at The Spot. For the 6th year, The Spot, Urban Peak Denver, The Community College of Denver, the GED Institute and The Adams Mark Hotel celebrate the educational accomplishments of homeless and urban youth who have earned their GED. This year, over 60 youth will walk away in cap and gown with their diploma in hand. In Denver, 24% of young people fail to earn a high school diploma. Urban Peak Denver and The Spot, offer young people the opportunity to learn and excel at their own pace. Youth will participate in a traditional graduation ceremony complete with caps, gowns and graduation rings. (Photo by Judy Walgren/ ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
