Despite Many Obstacles, Houston Mom Earns High School Diploma

June 01, 2016

HOUSTON (KTRK) — Jennifer Jimenez is a fighter, and you could say she’s good at winning her battles.

She’s faced cancer and is now in remission. She’s faced personal hardships but hasn’t let them hold her back, and she fought daily to make it to school and now she’s finally graduating.

Jimenez will be just one of 90 graduates who will be earning their high school diploma from the Houston Can Academy, a tuition-free charter school for people who’ve struggled in traditional high school settings. They will walk across the stage at 11am Thursday at Houston Baptist University – McNair Hall, 7502 Fondren Road.

“Jennifer’s story to graduation is one of many among the Houston Can Academy spring graduates who made the choice to ignore negative influences and focus on their goal to graduate from high school,” according to the school’s public relations office.
