Brimming with pride: Looking back on Dixon's graduation

Dixon has been a member of our BC family for the last several years. Anyone who knows Dixon knows that she is hilarious and full of personality. She also has a very caring and responsible spirit that makes her someone you can count on. 

Dixon has come so far in the time we have known her. When we first met her, she still had the same hilarious personality, but it was matched by a hardness and a quick temper that she had developed from past experiences. Over time, we watched her soften to us, to others, and to God as she began to trust, love and see a future for herself. 

In December, we got to watch this amazing girl achieve something remarkable: graduating high school! She worked so hard for that moment, and words cannot express how proud we are of her for her commitment and dedication to reaching her goals. 

Often in urban ministry moments like this are few and far between. It is definitely a moment of beating the odds. High school graduation is a huge accomplishment, and we are so grateful that Dixon has persevered and trusted God to get to this point. We love her and can't wait to see where the future takes her!
