Here is the truth about second chances: They rarely happen by chance. It takes dedication, hard work and a desire to have something different. There is a quote that says, “And suddenly, you know that it’s time to start something new and trust the magic.” This quote couldn’t be more perfect than for Mission High School’s Star Graduate, Khara Greenwell.
Khara was the first student to enter Mission High School, a school that supports students who are in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. Despite her darkest days, Khara wanted to do something new and to learn how to “trust the magic.”
In May 2017, shortly after leaving rehab, Khara gave up her anonymity at the Clark County School District board meeting where they were voting on whether to approve funding for MHS or not. Khara wanted the school board and world to know that she wanted and needed something different.
She began her junior year with only 2.5 credits and thought that she would never graduate from high school. Today, Khara is graduating on time with an unweighted grade point average of 2.875, and is looking to join the military this fall!
It is with great honor and pride that Mission High School selects Ms. Khara Edie Greenwell as its Star Graduate.
Dream, sparkle, and shine, sweet girl!
