Like many students this summer, Alexis Kiefer will walk across the stage to receive her high school diploma. However, Alexis is not your typical high school student. Her educational journey led her to Christel House DORS where she will earn a free in-demand job certification and her high school diploma. “I was sent here from another school to earn my diploma. The staff here care about your wellbeing and future,” Kiefer says. “Most schools don’t do that.”
Kiefer is part of a group of students taking advantage of the in-house welding certification program at DORS South. "I became interested after hearing about the problem and seeing demonstrations in the welding room,” says Kiefer. She's looking forward to pursuing a career welding after graduation this June.
