Back on Track at Western High School

This past December, Back On Track, a UNLV Foundation program to help students who have fallen behind in school, held its first student recognition event at Western High School with leadership coordinators Denise Edwards and Charitie Bronson. Over 40 students were in attendance. Eighty-two students were recognized—young people who had completed at least one half-credit course that they had been deficient in. Students received Walmart gift cards for every half-credit course they had completed, with some participants completing two or three courses. That’s 82 young lives that have been changed for the better, thanks to the help of WLC.
