      Congratulations Alexis! My mom was a migrant worker and had to begin working in third grade. She got her GED when I was in 7th grade. Education was my parents primary goal! Hook'em '88!

      Yeh, I wish you well, I'm in the Ninth grade, and working to get my education, I'm not a migrant worker, but I'm in CPS. So school is hard, being moved alot. You give me hope.. Thanks.
