She will be honored by the school at the upcoming Ladyville Tech High School graduation to be held on Saturday, June 6, at the Kings Room at the Princess Ramada Hotel in Belize City.

Celine Moses, Michellee’s elated mother, said that she is proud of her daughter for the accomplishment.
Michellee, for her part, said that she is proud of herself. She said that she studied and worked hard, does not miss school and sacrifices a lot. Her status as the school’s top 3rd form student was a surprise to her, she said. She was always told by her peers and teachers that she was outstanding, but had not believed them.
Michellee said that her mantra is, “Don’t be a fool, stay in school.” She said that a person needs an education to survive, and she is striving to get her education.
She has been through adversities, including family issues, and she had been out of school for a year, and went on transfer to Ladyville Tech High School, where she begged to be taken in because of her financial, situation at the time.
The top performer said that all the adversities are now behind her, and she is focused on school. She is happy and excited and advises her friends to stay focused and stay in school. She is looking forward to her big day when she will receive her honors at Ladyville Tech’s graduation ceremony.
