NECN Making the Grade

Making the Grade GangThe NECN team, students and tutors, staff, Oliver Ames High School and Stonehill College volunteers gather
for a group shot to wrap up filming of NECN’s
Making the Grade segment at SOWMA’s former headquarters.

On Monday, October 19, NECN visited School on Wheels to film a Making the Grade segment featuring SOWMA tutor/student team Beth Young and Ana Lobo. Beth has tutored and mentored Ana for nearly eight years, since Ana enrolled in Brockton High School. Ana has since earned her associate’s degree from Massasoit Community College and is now pursuing a bachelor’s degree at Bridgewater State University. Ana’s nine-year-old daughter, Brianna is also a School on Wheels student, tutored by longtime SOWMA volunteer, Donald Slovin.

NECN’s Making the Grade provides a look at education-related news across New England. Morning News Anchor Brian Shactman talked with Beth and Ana to explore the impact of SOWMA’s services on the educational success of students impacted by homelessness. The interview, scheduled to air on Tuesday, November 10, focuses on the success of their academic relationship and long-term commitment to Ana’s education, and the impact of SOWMA's services on homeless students.
