Early College


Meet the GCEC Class of 2018

Kera Alana Tidwell

Baldwin High School

I have been in the Early College program since 8th grade. During that time, I have gained a lot of experience. Whether it was good, bad, or just something, the experiences pushed me forward to become a better person. There were struggles, drama, or just really bad days that made me want to quit. Despite it all, I have gained a supportive family that kept me on my feet, whether it be administrators, professors, teachers, or friends. All have pushed me to do my best, to keep going even though it was hard, and all has insured that I become a better, well-rounded individual, capable of tackling everything life throws at me. However, the most important value I learned at the Early College is that by working hard, anything can be accomplished. I am very grateful for being in this program, and I will always miss my GCEC family and the memories that came with it.
