Meet Shanyia

Due to stress from her home life, Shanyia had a hard time staying focused in class. She had academic and behavioral issues and often acted out at school.

Thankfully, CIS Student Support Specialist Nicole Boone realized Shanyia’s potential. Nicole helped Shanyia channel her emotions in positive ways, focus on remote learning, and stay on track to graduate.

With Nicole’s help, Shanyia graduated high school early in December of 2020! Thanks to career readiness, resume building, and interviewing supports Shanyia received from CIS, she now works full-time in packaging/manufacturing at Hampton Farms in Severn, NC. The job provides health insurance, a 401K and paid vacation!
