Documentary Screening: "Who Cares About Kelsey?"
6:00 PM
Belgrade High School Auditorium
Description:
Who Cares About Kelsey? is the story of Kelsey Carroll, who has one goal - to graduate from high school - but has plenty of reasons why she shouldn't. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, sexual abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn't earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. Who Cares About Kelsey? is the story of Kelsey's transformation from a defiant and disruptive "problem student" to a motivated and self-confident young woman. Along the way, critical figures in her personal and educational life play important roles in an education revolution that's about empowering --not overpowering-- youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. A panel discussion will be held after the film with representatives from Belgrade Schools, Gallatin Mental Health Center, and the Human Resource Development Council.
