A life turned around by the leader of the class

By Reatna Taylor, JCSU

The students in this part of the RUNDNC2012 project were asked to think about leadership.  They learned about leaders who made a difference on Charlotte's Westside.  And then, they created stories about the leaders who inspire them today.

Reatna Taylor is a freshman Biology student at JCSU.   She was asked to create a story who's leadership inspired her.   She talks about overcoming odds through the intervention of a caring teacher.    Hear from that leader herself about how she embraced hard to teach students and decided to change their lives.
