Cedric is living proof that determination can produce extraordinary results. “When I was younger, I was labeled an ‘at-risk’ child because I grew up in a single-parent home, I was the tenth child, and I struggled academically in school. I had a school psychologist tell me I would never graduate from college because of my challenges. I let those words and many other labels stick with me throughout my adult life.” Fortunately for Cedric, there was one teacher who recognized the damage of such labels. “Mrs. Wisdhal inspired me to do my best. She told me to not allow those labels to stick with me.” With Mrs. Wisdhal’s encouragement, Cedric enrolled in community college after high school, but dropped out after two years. “I knew I shouldn’t, but I still believed the labels.”Cedric spent the next five years in the professional world - he worked in the school system, in camp services, in juvenile correction, and, most recently, as a residential substance abuse counselor for adolescents. Like many adults, Cedric soon realized that in order to progress in his career, he would have to return to college. “The doors were a challenge to open without my degree.” On September 2011, Cedric graduation with his BA in social science w education now he is working on his master ineducation counseling was working s as a Dropout Prevention / Social Studies Teacher at Panama City Marine Amikids School now Visible Men Academy.
