Operation Graduation 2013: Jerry Warren (Glen Ellyn, Ill.)
When I first came to Ombudsman two years ago I didn’t know what to expect. I had made a mistake at Glenbard South High School so I thought it would be tougher here. When I got here I felt like there was so much work to do and I would never get done.
Then I started doing the work and finishing my work very fast. The first year I was at Ombudsman I got lots of help from teachers and asked questions if I got stuck on something.
My second year at Ombudsman I knew what to expect so I immediately dived into the work and started working hard. As my second year went on I hit a few bumps in the road but I managed to put that past me and keep striving to finish.
Out of my Ombudsman experience I have learned to be a standup guy and never give up. I would’ve thought I was going to graduate but now I’m here.
