    I attended Northern star while i was pregnant at 15yrs old. Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Daniels showed me there was a way i could be a good mom and an educated women, even in my situation. Without them I would have never finished school and now I'm a mommy of two, a wife, and a pre school teacher. Northern star was more then a school to me, it was a place to turn when I had no other!
