UPDATE: We Want You Back Campaign Huge Success
(ABC 6 News) --We've got an update to share with you on a story we first brought you last week.
This years We Want You Back campaign was a huge success. It's aimed at encouraging high school drop outs to return to school to get their diplomas.
We were there on Saturday as volunteers went door knocking to welcome students back. This year we are pleased to announce 14 students are now back enrolled in rochester public schools. That's up from 4 students last year.
"We had a student who thought she couldn't because she was turning 21, and now theres a place for its, it's Hawthorne Education Center and so we have something for everyone and we really do, its just making sure people are aware of these options," says Heather Nessler with Rochester Public Schools.
ABC 6 News sat down with Kou Yang, who was one of the four, who returned to school last year and is now graduating in January.
