Success Stories of Students in the Migrant Education Program

The following student stories celebrate the success of migrant participants with the support of the Georgia Migrant Education Program. Each story speaks to the contributions of educators, migrant staff, school administrators, local districts, community partners and migrant parents in helping migrant participants reach their highest potential.

It is our hope that the success stories presented in this publication serve as a source of inspiration to other migrant students and parents, and that it becomes a valuable resource for engaging in dialogue with interested agencies and community leaders working together to not only enhance the services provided to migrant students and families but also to provide them with a better quality of life in their communities.
