While most students spend four years attending one high school, Angel Carroll, who was in the foster care system, bounced around to a dozen different homes in just one year.

"My third year in high school I was still a freshman, so that just shows that I was never in one place long enough to get a credit," Angel said.

Now as a Red Raider, she's making the most of her education in hopes of one day making a difference in the lives of others like her.
