Christopher Cosey admits he wasn’t a good student when he attended J.I. Case High School. He cut class and didn’t keep up with his homework, but his mom knew he could do better.
Now a student at Racine Alternative Education, Cosey, 17, is recovering his lost credits and on track to graduate in 2017. He said he plans on enrolling at Gateway Technical College so he can become a paramedic. RAE, he said has made all the difference.
“My mom wants me to do good things in life, and I want to succeed,” he said. “Success means being great at what you want to be.”
