The middle school students who congregated together Thursday for lunch in Room D-105 came from all walks of life and have had myriad obstacles tossed in their way.
However, the two things they all have in common are the moniker of being considered, in most cases, an at-risk student; and the most important, they rely on a group of four dedicated mentors who form the backbone of a Green Valley Middle School program called Legacy, which at its root strives to help students become academically and socially successful.
Isela Chacon, 14, said she saw last year how it helped other students. She admitted to not doing well herself with grade and behavior problems.
