The Granby team is working diligently and enthusiastically, honing in on an angle and recovering daily from the shocking statistics we’ve uncovered.

We’ve been able to obtain interviews with the director of the Youth Development program for the Newport News City Schools, several students, the principal of the evening school program for Norfolk Public Schools, and, of course, our principal and head of guidance. They are all helping us get in contact with students who have dropped out or are in danger of dropping out. We’re hoping to weave our story around several of these students.
