“My experience at VTR was life changing and I was able to see that I can achieve more than I thought was possible. I was able to play football and learn the importance of being a team player….and we won! I have one more year of HS left and I get to play football again, too. I want to go to college after I graduate! Thank you for helping me to prove that I CAN make good choices.”
