Dayton GEAR UP has hired a new student tutor to help cohort tutoring, especially in math. Haley Puckett is a senior at Dayton High School and presently taking College Prep Math (14). She has taken Algebra I and II and Geometry which qualifies to help students in math. Currently Haley has a 3.6 GPA. She has been involved with the GEAR UP program through her Middle/High School years and has participated in a number of GEAR UP events. Haley greets our 3rd period students with a smile, and a great attitude. She is also in tune with the teacher’s plans and participates as needed. Her plans for college are to attend Northwest Nazarene University located in Nampa, Idaho. She was recently accepted to the college. Here she will achieve her master’s degree in science, and then move to Bastyr University where she will fulfill her dream of becoming a certified midwife. Haley is showing her community she is responsible by being active in community services and projects. She goes beyond what is asked of her. We are proud of Haley that she allowed GEAR UP to be a part of helping her make choices for her future.
