Success Story – Elizabeth Aragon
Elizabeth enrolled in Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) during high school. She returned to school after her baby was born, but a traditional approach didn’t fit her situation any more. Elizabeth learned about The Excel Center through her nurse, and instead of dropping out, she transferred. She participates in the certified nursing assistant program and expects to graduate in 2014. Elizabeth works full time at a recycling operation in Plainfield and hopes to be a nurse someday. Her son, Anthony, is now 16 months old.
