GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Sixteen-year-old Seth Reynolds says he went to a few different high schools before finally landing at Heartside Ministry’s “Bridging the Gap” GED and literacy program this spring.
…”My advice to others is don’t stop trying,” said Reynolds, who said the traditional high school was not a good fit for him but people must keep trying to find a situation that works. “I’m going to enroll in GRCC (Grand Rapids Community College) now. I have an interest in theology and music.”
