Director, Kosciusko County Educational Development
Kosciusko County Educational Development is pleased to introduce Kayla Creech. Creech is a 2014 graduate from Whitko High School.
Creech started with KC-Ed halfway through her junior year at Whitko and explains that were it not for the relationship she had with her graduation coach, and knowing she had someone who cared about her success, she would not have graduated high school.
In regards to pursuing her high school diploma she said “I want to do what my parents didn’t do,” and that she did! Not only did she graduate, but she did so while working 40-45 hours per week as a senior. Her hard work and determination to catch up and finish strong paid off!
She is now working two jobs and will begin her pursuit of a special education degree by taking courses at Ivy Tech in January. Kayla is passionate about people and wants to be that positive relationship for someone else!
KC-Ed’s mission is to promote high school graduation, one relationship at a time. Their K-12 programs serve four area school corporations: Tippecanoe Valley, Warsaw, Wawasee, and Whitko.
KC-Ed is in its fifth year of operation and has served nearly 400 students during that time. KC-Ed is a 501 C 3 public charity and is entirely funded by grants and individual or corporate donations. For more information about KC-Ed, visit www.TheKCED.com.
