Fifteen freshmen in the Students of Promise program met with Channel 5 News Anchor Danita Harris on March 30 to hear about her journey to success. “I also talked about what it takes to be successful,” she said.

“Hard work, resiliency and self-discipline are at the core of everyone’s success story.”

She also talked about how every successful person has failed – many times. She gave several examples from her own life about failure and re-focusing her direction.
