The difference between people who are successful and those who are not is that when success people don’t feel like doing something, they do it anyway.
thinkLaw Founder | CEO Colin Seale shared this original quote with Clark County School District high school seniors who were off track to graduate, but found their way through CCSD’s Reclaim Your Future Mentoring Project. This program asks community and business volunteers to knock on doors to encourage students to re-enroll in school and to serve as mentors to provide guidance and support to these young people to ensure graduation is achieved. This project is a partnership between CCSD, Workforce Connections and the United Way focusing on improving the graduation rate in the Clark County School District. Thanks to this program, over 700 students are now on track to graduate!
The packed house at the MGM Grand Casino and Hotel Resort heard Colin’s personal story about reclaiming his own future when he underachieved in high school and fighting to protect his future throughout his career in education, child welfare, and the law.
