Nominated By Caseworker Rachel Hagens.
Growing up, Will had to deal with family issues at home that lead to his eventual placement into the foster care system. Will struggled with his time in foster care and moved from placement to placement over the next several years. Despite all of the changes in his living situations and the, then, lack of family involvement, he was able to advocate for his needs while looking towards his future. Will ultimately obtained his GED and successfully emancipated from the foster care system. He is now working a full time job and exploring his options to further his education. He has always been an independent and positive youth that remains kind to others, even in the face of pain.
