For these young grads, it’s all about beating the odds Seniors face some tough challenges but still come out on top.

of everything she did and said, sometimes changing her personality to suit what she thought her foster family would like. “Everything I did, I thought about what would make them happy,” she said. Irvine said her years with the Newberry band and color guard felt like family, but she’s chosen not to continue with guard at UF. She’s nervous about not having that group to fall back on, but said she’s excited to nd her niche on campus. “That’s what I’m all about in life,” she said. “If anything, it’ll be an experience.”

igh school is no picnic. By the time the shock of the transition from middle school wears off, it’s nearly time to start looking for colleges. And while not everyone plans to go on to college, graduation requirements seem to get harder and harder each year. Not to mention the dramatics of daily life within a throng of hormonal teenagers. But some students have extra struggles. Whether it’s family life or an illness, there are factors at work that make it even harder to excel. Yet many of them do. Here are just a few of Alachua County’s graduating seniors who have beat some tough odds to come out on top.

Becoming a leader

Geremy Kendrick is rounding out his senior year at Eastside High with acceptance letters from the University of Florida, the Coast Guard Academy, the Naval Academy Prep School and a $180,000 Navy ROTC scholarship from Harvard. But he wasn’t always such a stellar student. Kendrick, now 18, got off track when he got to middle school, pulling three F’s on one of his report cards. Looking around his neighborhood, he saw older kids doing drugs and getting into trouble. He decided to change his own ways. “I made up in my mind that I wasn’t going to become a statistic,” he said. “It paid off.” Kendrick’s dad, a widower, and some dedicated teachers at Lincoln Middle got him the help he needed, he said. Kendrick signed up for Eastside’s Navy JROTC program as soon as he could. As the unit’s commanding ofcer now, Kendrick said he’s able to mentor younger students who were struggling the same way he was. He’s also pulled up his grades, earning mostly A’s in his AP classes at Eastside. “It’s taught me some really valuable leadership skills,” he said. “[NJROTC] taught me how to have discipline with myself, and it taught me how to have commitment, not only to yourself but also with a team.” Kendrick leaves soon for New London, Connecticut, to start his studies in mechanical engineering at the United States Coast Guard Academy. He’s never been away from home for more than two weeks, and life at a military academy is sure to be a rigorous change, but Kendrick said he’s ready. “It’s unreal. It just seems like everything’s happening so fast,” he said. “But I’m excited.”

have herself to look out for these days. The 19-year-old Loften High senior is holding down a part-time job, nishing high school and taking care of her 18-month-old son, Jordan. “It’s been really challenging,” she said, “but I have a great support system behind me that’s helped me through all of it.” Slevin started out in the Professional Academies Magnet at Loften as a freshman in the Early Childhood Education academy. Slevin became pregnant in March of her sophomore year. By November of the same year, her junior year, she said it was getting hard to manage her coursework with her pregnancy. She dropped out of the magnet program. Slevin was allowed to stay in the regular academic program at Loften High because of her son. Loften is home to the ACCEPT Program, which provides free childcare for teen parents along with parenting classes and other resources. Having nished a 40-hour Department of Children and



Families training program before leaving the childhood education magnet, Slevin was able to pick up a job at O2B Livingston Kids. On weekdays, she goes to work at the childcare facility from 7 to 11 a.m., goes to school at Loften from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and goes back to work at O2B from 2 to 6 p.m. Slevin and her boyfriend, David Kurtz, moved into their own apartment with their son at the beginning of the month. In June, Slevin will have a full-time job there working with 3-year-olds. She’s counting down the days until May 30 — graduation day. Slevin said she’d consider furthering her education in the future. “But I’ll take a break for a little while. I’ll just go to work and focus on my son,” she said.

Irvine, who goes by the nickname Jessi, has been in foster care since fth grade. Now 18 and getting ready to graduate as salutatorian of her senior class at Newberry High, she’s lived with ve different foster families. Her longest placement was three years. Some have been only a few months. “You just have to learn how to get accustomed to people, different lifestyles,” she said. Although she’s had some positive experiences in foster care, Irvine said it was especially difcult to navigate college and scholarship applications, on top of Advanced Placement classes and color guard, without a real family to back her up. Irvine got into every college she applied to, but chose UF, where she plans to study linguistics and eventually become a Spanish translator. “My whole life’s had a lot of change,” she said. “I was really trying to keep some kind of constant.” Being in a foster home meant walking on eggshells, she said. Not wanting to be handed back to the state, Irvine was mindful

A steadfast resolve

For Jessica Irvine, college means nding herself for the rst time.

About 10 years ago, Svetlana Livingston was living in a bleak orphanage in Ukraine where thoughts of the future were more about the next meal than college. But Livingston, who could not speak English when she and her three sisters were adopted by Melissa and Robert Livingston, has graduated from Gainesville High School’s Cambridge program and will be attending the University of South Florida with hopes of becoming an engineer. “It has been quite a long journey, but I’m really excited to have everything unfold,” Livingston said. “I knew it was going to be hard and difcult — new language, new culture, new parents. Once I got the hang of it, it was good.” Livingston, who goes by the nickname Svieta, is the oldest of the four siblings and was 9 when the Livingstons adopted them. Robert, an assistant Alachua County attorney, and Melissa had intended to adopt just Livingston. But they adopted all four, who were in two different orphanages, to unite the girls. Not only did Livingston have to learn English, she had to catch up in general education after a lack of it in the orphanage. She’s now uent in English and Spanish and her native Russian. Science is her favorite subject. She has a summer internship at Exactech, a Gainesville company that makes orthopedic implant devices, related surgical instruments and biologic materials. “I love learning about life and the different perspectives — you have chemistry with molecules, physics with motion and force, and biology with cells,” Livingston said. She said she chose USF because the campus has a family atmosphere. The fact that Livingston aims to study engineering was something she never dreamed of when she was still in Ukraine. “I honestly didn’t have any hopes or aspirations. I came from barely being able to have food every night. I never thought about going to college. I didn’t know what college was,” Livingston said. “It feels like I’ve lived two separate lives. I can’t believe I’ve gone this far.” Cindy Swirko contributed to this report.

When choosing colleges, parents should calculate the cost By Claudia Buck The Sacramento Bee


his spring, millions of high school seniors are contemplating their college choices for next fall. Near the beach? Closer to bigcity life at campuses in Seattle, San Francisco or New York City? Tucked into a smaller, more intimate college setting? In addition to where, another equally critical calculation in deciding which college to attend is how much. With college costs at budget-breaking levels, it can be a confusing, daunting, discouraging part of the college-acceptance experience. Parents like Mark and Julie Bradford face a double whammy. Their twins, Emma and Justin, have been accepted to a host of public and private universities, from the University of CaliforniaSanta Barbara to New York University. With two freshmen heading off to campus this fall, the Bradfords could easily be staring at $113,000 a year

“Don’t make a choice solely on money, but if you can get by with less debt, you’ll never regret that.” ELENA LARSON, assistant director in the student financial services office at California State University, Sacramento for both kids. “It’s shocking,” said Julie Bradford, speaking by phone recently, during a break between tours in Southern California. She and her husband have lled out the FAFSA nancial aid forms, visited campus aid ofces and pored over campus tuition pages. Until their twins determine exactly which schools they’ll attend, the complete picture of exactly what the Bradford family will have to fork out in double-duty college costs isn’t clear. “It’s hard to gure it all out,” said Julie Bradford, noting that her husband,

an environmental consultant, had compiled an Excel spreadsheet to compare tuition and room/ board costs for each of their 18-year-olds. College and nancial experts feel their pain. In recent years, there’s been a push to make the college-cost comparisons easier for families. For too many families, the how-to-pay-for-college equation has been “complex and confusing,” said Rohit Chopra, student loan ombudsman for the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, created by Congress to help consumers better navigate the complex world of nancial products. Under its “Know Before You Owe” project, the CFPB wants to arm students and parents “with clear information and a clear set of facts” before they take out costly student loans. For too long, Chopra said, “Many borrowers didn’t really understand much of the nancial aid information

they got, because it was laden with jargon and lots of ne print.” To strip away the confusion, the CFPB’s rst effort in 2012 was the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet, which is a streamlined, easy-to-read template that colleges can use to send out nancial aid information to their prospective students. It includes details on the school’s graduation rates, loan defaults and other data. As of this month, more than 2,000 public and private schools nationwide have adopted the “shopping sheet” format, ranging from tiny beauty schools to major universities like Stanford. On its website, the CFPB’s “Paying for College” section lets students plug in numbers from schools, three at a time, to make comparisons of rst-year college costs. It also shows your potential student loan debt at graduation. “Even if they haven’t received their nancial aid

offer from their school, they can use it to make estimates,” Chopra said. For example, if a student decides to live in cheaper, off-campus housing, that choice can affect how much they might need to borrow. The motivation behind such tools is trying to ensure that college students don’t blithely rack up tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt, which can drag down their post-college nancial life and even have an impact on their future career choices. In 2012, the average amount of U.S. student loan debt for graduating college seniors was $29,400, according to the nonprot Institute for College Access & Success, a research and advocacy group. Elena Larson, assistant director in the student nancial services ofce at California State University, Sacramento, often sees the results of college kids who borrowed too much. In some cases, she

said, they either didn’t consider the nancial burden of paying back loans or thought a degree from an expensive, prestigious university would automatically yield a high-paying job. As the recession proved, that’s not always the case. The nancial burden of huge monthly student loan payments can affect their choices on getting married, buying a rst house or having a child. When choosing a college, “Don’t make a choice solely on money,” Larson said, “but if you can get by with less debt, you’ll never regret that.” With two kids in college this fall, the Bradfords gure they’ll be looking at possible student loans, either public or private. And they fully expect their kids to help foot the bill. Aside from searching for scholarships, which the Bradford twins have already begun to do, their mom says: “We’re denitely telling our kids they’ll be working this summer.”

Labor Department report released this month nds that the share of young people enrolled in college by the October after they graduate from high school has tumbled in the past few years. From a high of 70.1 percent in 2009, it was down to 65.9 percent in 2013. Other reports have found similar declines in enrollment for the entire universe of college students, not just those coming directly out of high school. No doubt many pundits will celebrate this news. The previous swells in postsecondary enrollment, driven partly by the lackluster job market, brought frequent calls of a “college bubble.” Just as the government subsidized too much homeownership, the argument goes, it’s also been subsidizing too much higher education. After all, freshmen land on college campuses bright-eyed and bushytailed, expecting to enrich their minds and, eventually (post-degree), their bank accounts. Instead, they graduate nancially crippled by loan debts. Many can’t nd jobs, or they nd jobs that don’t require a bachelor’s degree. But here’s why college is still worth it, and still worth subsidizing. Even though unemployment rates for young college grads seem high — especially in the rst few months after graduation — they’re still much lower than they are for people without degrees. According to Labor Department data, the unemployment rate for Americans ages 20 to 29 who have a bachelor’s

degree was 5.8 percent in 2013. In that same age group, among people with no education beyond a high school diploma, it was 14 percent. And for those who do nd work, the wage premium for higher education has grown over time. In 1979, among full-time workers of all ages, the median college graduate earned 38 percent more than did the median high school graduate; today the college-educated worker earns about 82 percent more. College is, as the Hamilton Project has pointed out, one of the best possible investments you can make, outperforming stocks, gold, long-term Treasurys, AAA corporate bonds and housing. That’s true for both a four-year degree and even more so for an associate’s degree. A college degree is certainly no guarantee of nancial success, but it is nearly a prerequisite for moving up the income ladder if you’re poor. Of Americans born into families in the bottom income quintile, almost half who didn’t get a college degree remained stuck in the poorest income quintile as adults; the same was true for just 10 percent of Americans born poor who then got a college degree, Pew’s Economic Mobility Project found in 2012. As for why higher ed should be subsidized: There are large, positive spillover effects from having a more educated workforce beyond the gains that accrue to the degree-holder. Research has found that having a higher concentration of college graduates in a local economy increases the wages of not only the college grads themselves

but also those without bachelor’s degrees. (Which is why it’s especially shortsighted for states to cut higher education funds, which forces schools to raise tuition and price out the more marginal matriculants.) One of the silver linings of the nancial crisis might be that the lousy job market drove many people into, or back into, college to upgrade their skills. They are reemerging more skilled and better equipped to help expand a 21st-century economy, once it fully heals. That said, critics are right that not everyone is using their college-going years wisely or investing in the most lucrative skills. The usual punchline is that too many people are majoring in women’s studies or English. These are not the biggest sources of growth, though; in fact, “area, ethnic, cultural, gender and group studies” represented less than 1 percent of bachelor’s degrees awarded in 1970-71 and 2011-12, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. The share of English majors has shrunk over the past 40 years, both as a percentage of all newly awarded bachelor’s degrees and in raw numbers. Public policy could do much more to nudge students into disciplines that produce bigger private and public economic returns, including better career counseling or tuition discounts in elds where there are expected skill shortages. But rst things rst: We need to stop playing down what a great investment college is for most Americans.






You have grown into a fine and thoughtful young man. We are proud to have been a part of your life.

Congratulations!! We love you. Love, Mom, Dad, Peggy, Lizzy & Takoda

College graduation: 4 ways things have changed By Leanne Italie The Associated Press


here’s still plenty of pomp and circumstance, inspiring words from lofty speakers and tossing tassels, but graduating from college today is very different from a generation or so ago. Here are four things today’s college graduates may experience that have changed from 30 years ago, when the parents of some of today’s students were picking up their diplomas.

Student loan debt

In 1984, according to some estimates, only half of graduates had debt from college loans, averaging about $2,000. Now, two-thirds of recent bachelor’s degree recipients have outstanding student loans, with an average debt of about $27,000, according to a Pew Research Center report. “Back in 1984, I was a fairly recent college grad. I had a $10,000 student loan and payments were $63.50 per month,” said nancial planner Judy McNary in Broomeld, Colorado. Rent on her apartment was $600, “so that loan payment was about 10 percent of the cost of our housing. Fast forward to 2014, and I have met many recent graduates whose loan payments are anywhere from $900 to $2,000 per month — easily matching or exceeding their housing costs.”


Several schools are urging 2014 graduates to resist the sele when they walk across the stage during commencement to get their diploma and shake hands with the college president or dean of students. But seles are OK at other points in commencements at Bryant University in Smitheld, Rhode Island, and the University of South Florida in Tampa, two schools that banned seles on stage in the interest of time. How painful is the ban? “Nobody cares that we can’t

take seles,” said 22-year-old Ali Luthman, a Bryant senior graduating with a double major in sociology and marketing. “There’s a time and a place when seles are appropriate, and that’s not when you’re crossing the stage.” Three decades ago, the analog version of seles was to have someone else take your picture with a lm camera, then head to the drug store and pay to have the lm developed, hoping for at least one non-blurry shot to freeze the moment. Interestingly, prices haven’t changed that much for those who still use old-fashioned lm cameras. A roll of 24 exposures cost about $3 to $5 in 1984, and developing 4-by-6 prints ran $8 to $15, estimated Matthew Schmidt, a spokesman for FujiFilm America. Today, a four-pack of 24-exposure FujiColor Superia X-Tra lists for $17.95, and Walgreens processes 24 color exposures of 35mm lm for $11.99.

Pet diplomas

It used to be a tearful farewell to Fido or Fluffy when you went away to school. But rules have loosened on some campuses, though dorm policies vary on type of pets, according to a 2011 survey of admissions ofcials by Kaplan Test Prep. Some schools allow pets in tanks, some have cat-designated oors and others have whole dorms dedicated to pet cohabiters. Eckerd College has taken pet-friendly to a whole new level, holding its rst “graduation” ceremony for the critters themselves last year, complete with treats, special diplomas and tiny mortarboards decorated with the initials EC. Dean of students James Annarelli, who ofciated at the school’s commencement in St. Petersburg, said there were a few surprises. “Pet the snake. Watch the bird,” said one student who showed up with a slithery buddy wrapped around one wrist and a sharp-beaked

feathered friend perched on the other. And a dog trained to high-ve accidentally scratched Annarelli; he had to triage with a handkerchief for the rest of the ceremony. But Annarelli, who has a dog and cat, is a fan of pets helping students acclimate to campus life, especially those living far from home. About 20 students in last year’s graduating class of 500 participated in the pet commencement. “What’s so heartwarming is that students with pets who are graduating had friends join them, just as

though their children were graduating,” he said.

Pomp and Circumstance

The traditional march prevails, with some renditions harkening to the past and others looking to the future. At Eckerd, for instance, graduating students walk from the center of the waterfront campus to a tent in a eld, led by ve professional bagpipers playing traditional Scottish music. They switch to hufng and pufng on “Pomp” as

students enter the tent. “The use of bagpipers goes to the earliest days of the college and reects what a number of church-related colleges do,” Annarelli said. On the Atlanta campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology, by contrast, a band of dancing robots called Shimis perform at commencement. Shimi was developed at the school’s Center for Music Technology in conjunction with a media lab in Israel. Controlled by Android smartphone technology, Shimi’s dance moves match whatever music it senses, whether a selected playlist or a drumbeat. Three Shimis performed to “Pomp and Circumstance” from white pedestals during Georgia Tech’s commencement ceremonies last December, and will be front and center again this commencement season.

Students find creative ways to help pay for college From selling T-shirts to crowd-funding to hemming pants, teens find ways to raise funds. By Denise-Marie Ordway Orlando Sentinel


lex Ramirez is the rst in her family to go to college. In August, she’ll start classes at the University of South Florida. But even with grants and scholarships lined up, the Colonial High School senior said she has less than half of the $10,000 she needs for tuition, housing and other costs for the fall semester. So Ramirez is launching her own mini-business to get cash for college. She joins other students trying to raise money in creative ways. T-SHIRTS FOR SALE: Ramirez, an artist with a 4.3 grade-point average who plans to major in biomedical sciences, has put one of her drawings on a T-shirt. Last month, she started selling T-shirts featuring a woman wearing a multi-

colored mask for $20-$22 apiece through her Facebook page, Alex’s Art Shirts. She needs $6,000 by the end of the summer. So far, she has collected $314. “It is an original artwork, and it’s a T-shirt,” said Ramirez, 18. “I think $20 is well worth it.” HORNS, ANYONE: Some college students sell hand-crafted items on Etsy, an online marketplace for artisans. They sell homemade hair bows, scarves or jewelry. Lulu Rolando, 20, of Fort Lauderdale, makes ears and horns. She initially started creating elaborate, painted horns out of clay for personal use — as part of the costumes she likes to wear to Renaissance festivals and conventions for fans of Japanese anime. Then Rolando, a freshman at Valencia College, realized she could sell horns and clay animal ears online to make money for textbooks and groceries. She was excited to nd a market for such items among people who enjoy dressing up as ctional characters,

Valencia College student Lulu Rolando, 20, adjusts elaborate animal horns that she creates out of clay to sell to fans of Japanese cartoons and Greek/ Roman mythology. Rolando creates all sorts of things to sell on Etsy to raise money for school. She also sells hand-painted bras and other items. demons and mythological creatures. She said she makes about $500 a semester. One of her biggest sellers: antelope horns. She has made at least 40 pairs over the past year. Customers pay $30 to $100 for each pair of customized horns, depending on their size and detail. CROWD-FUNDING: Terrence Smith, a student at the University of Central Florida, and Josiah Scott,

who goes to Valencia, decided to simply ask the public to donate to their education funds. The two are among more than two dozen Central Florida students using crowd-funding platforms to raise money for tuition, books, international trips and college-related projects. Both Smith and Scott have ads on Smith, 22, an education major from Tallahassee,

wants to raise $2,900 so he can travel to Botswana to volunteer at a school there. So far, he had collected $1,382 from 34 people. “I have a passion for working with students, especially those in low-income areas ... ,” he wrote on his GoFundMe. com page. He added that his “ultimate dream” is to teach English in various countries and to also teach history. Scott has raised $350 of the $6,000 he is requesting. The money, combined with what he earns as a part-time lifeguard, will pay for classes as well as the books and other items he needs to complete his training to become a paramedic reghter. “I didn’t realize how expensive all this stuff was,” Scott, 21, of Winter Garden, says in a video that’s posted to his page. He also included photos of himself at age 6 wearing a reghter’s uniform and sitting in a re truck. “It has been my biggest passion ever since I’ve been a little boy, and this is all I’ve ever wanted to be,”

he says in the video. HEMMING PANTS: Some students offer services for a fee. Erica Walsh, a sophomore studying psychology at UCF, hems pants. Her mom had taught her and her twin sister to sew by hand when they were about 8 years old. A year later, they got their rst sewing machine. Those skills came in handy when Walsh realized that the nancial help she got from her parents and the money she makes at a part-time job on campus did not cover all her needs. She also makes pillows. “I love sewing and made pillows for my own room as a way to cut down on costs,” said Walsh, 20, of Ormond Beach. “Since I enjoyed doing it so much, I gured I could try to make some money out of it.” She does not earn a lot, but every bit helps. During her most lucrative month, she made about $150, which she uses mostly for college living expenses, food and gas. She advertises her pillows on a Facebook page called Erica’s Pillows.
