LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A JCPS program is celebrating a 25-year milestone.
The Louisville Education Employment Partnership -- or LEEP -- is a job program that encourages students to stay in school and improve their grades.
Students who graduate receive opportunities for employment, and are paired with mentors who keep them on track and help them plan careers.
Alexis Edelen, a student at Southern High School, was failing her courses when she started the program, but has since been able to improve her grades and now plans to continue her education. At a special breakfast at the Brown Hotel Friday morning, she shared her plans for the future.
"My goals are to graduate high school and go on to college," Edelen said. "I'm going to JCTA, I got accepted. And I want to major in radiology."
Metro United Way is part of the program that reaches 1,000 students a year. Many of those students are the first in their families to attend college.
