I am crafting in help of Juanita Bocanegra for 58th District Courtroom choose.

I met Juanita in 1991. She was one of my pre-calculus and AP calculus pupils at West Ottawa Higher School. This may well not seem like a outstanding achievement, as many learners just take these courses. Even so, Juanita was a migrant scholar. Just about every calendar year from fourth to 12th grade, Juanita would depart Michigan in November to go to college in Texas returning in March.

Juanita had quite a few qualities which compensated for the problem of changing educational facilities twice each 12 months. She was very smart, exceptionally inspired to attend school and experienced the assist of her parents. I sent my notes to her and on her return to Michigan we worked together immediately after college. Juanita’s tough do the job led to her results. I saw excellent promise for her upcoming.

She selected Grand Valley Point out University, where by she graduated from the Honors application with a diploma in intercontinental relations. After graduation, she worked entire-time as a lawful assistant at a local law firm even though attending law university nights and weekends. Just after earning her Juris Medical professional Degree in 2008, she was hired as an attorney in a Grand Rapids law organization. Considering that 2011, Juanita has served Ottawa County as an assistant prosecutor.
