Pammy is a 20-year-old college graduate who not only graduated from Capitol University in three years with a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts in Philosophy, but also received a near full scholarship to attend Case Western Reserve’s law school. Pammy didn’t always excel in school as she struggled academically due to a Learning Disability.   She was on an IEP in Special Education through 7th grade with a Learning Disability in Math, Writing, Spelling.   She worked very hard to overcome her challenges and went from resource room for some classes to Honor's and AP in high school.  She still had to work extra hard with math and writing (she always excelled verbally/orally) but was able to score a perfect 5 on AP Language (which is all writing). She is graduating from college in just three years.  While in college she was able to revive Capital's debate team.  She has been a Varsity Debate national qualifier all three years and writes all her own cases and helps her teammates write their cases as she has been captain these last two years.  She was offered 2 full rides to law school and 2 almost full rides.  She just committed to Case Western Reserve University Law School who has awarded her the Law Leadership Scholarship in the amount of 50,000 a year for three years. 

We learned from Pammy:

*Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out. 

*Believe in yourself no matter what others say…it will help you succeed

*Special education small group learning helps you become your best self.

*Parents should remind their children how their special education will help them learn best
