Like many parents, Tasha Chandler drives her children to school every morning. But unlike most, she’s headed to class too. Tasha, a mother of two daughters attending Chicora Elementary School of Communications, completed her GED at Chicora in just a few months through Trident United Way’s Links to Success initiative.
Today, Tasha is a Certified Nursing Assistant and is halfway through a two year program for Occupational Therapy. Tasha is committed to providing a better life for her daughters and herself.
Tasha’s daughters, Destiny (10) & Zi’Nesia, (7), are also benefiting from Links to Success by participating in programs that address academic and financial and health issues facing the children and their families. They’ve helped Destiny advance from struggling student to award-winner in academics and citizenship.
