From Grunt to Graduate
From Grunt to Graduate - Images by Pat Shannahan
I spent the week photographing Arizona Project Challenge cadet Michael Jensen during his final days in a 22-week long program from high school drop outs run by the Arizona National Guard. On Friday he became the first Arizona Project Challenge cadet to graduate high school through a new online program through Sequoia Choice Arizona Distance Learning. Only arounf 60 percent of the cadets finish the program.
