    When Abby lost her father early in life, she decided that she would use that tragedy to help others. Abby was in Jobs for Florida's Graduates in 2011 during her 8th grade year. In 2015, she was JFG's first "Treasure Hunt" college scholarship winner. Today, she is a pediatric Registered Nurse. 

    After losing both her parents during middle school, Ar'Keliah faced high school on her own. Through pure girt and self-determination she became a leader in her JFG class (2018) and finished strong. Today, she is a manager for the McDonalds corporation.
