At the beginning of the school year, Ronaee was on the road to dropping out. Her job was her priority. When a group of friends decided to try out for softball, she tagged along. She was told if she wanted to play, she had to get her grades up. Ronaee worked tirelessly to get her grades up to be academically eligible and attended school daily. By the end of the season, she improved her GPA by 11 points and went from nearly failing to being an engaged student. Instead of dropping out, she’s succeeding academically and looking forward to next season.
