Vanessa Swartz originally joined CAIR as part of the Missouri Options Program this fall. She decided she'd like to go the more traditional route and moved to the Transitions program later in the year. Vanessa demonstrated her excellence as a student early on by scoring a 20 on the ACT as part of the Duke TIP program in middle school. She was a model student during her time in Mr. Jarrett's homeroom earning gold sheet status and completing additional coursework to graduate this spring. Vanessa plans to attend Metropolitan Community College in the fall. Vanessa has a love for music and pop culture as well as having an excellent approach to life. It has been a joy and pleasure to work with her this year and we wish her the best.
