Qavy began attending ReLife in October 2011. He demonstrated difficult behaviors, but with staff support, he worked on his coping skills and learned how to manage himself. Thanks to his hard work, he has moved through the level system and has begun to transition to his neighborhood school.
Initially, Qavy began attending the neighborhood high school for just 30 minutes a day—enough to get a taste of what it was going to be like being at a school with a lot more students. He joined the wrestling team, started competing, and won a bronze medal.
Meanwhile, Qavy continued to progress at ReLife. As part of the Culinary class, he became integral to the banquet’s amazing success. He was chosen as Student of the Year and also received an attendance award.
Qavy models safe, responsible, and appropriate behavior for his peers at ReLife. Now that he is spending half days at his neighborhood school, he has become a leader amongst his peers who can see how hard work pays off. Both staff and students are proud of Qavy’s success—he’s a true ReLife Rock Star!
