A few years ago, Krystal Edwards had a choice to make. She could face a few fears and join a program that promised to prepare her for college or give in to insecurities and walk away.
Now 18, she is graduating from Madison Park Technical Vocational High School and heading to college on a four-year scholarship. She describes that path with a sense of wonder. Much of her success she attributes to one thing: the impact of Crossroads for Kids, the mentoring and college preparatory program she joined five years ago.
