Student overcomes challenges to pursue dream career

Alondra Reyes Ponce, a Madison College student, was among the recipients of the Wisconsin Job Honor Awards, an initiative aimed at recognizing Wisconsinites who have overcome barriers to employment.

A Mexican immigrant, Reyes Ponce became homeless while in high school. School officials recommended Middle College, a dual credit program at Madison College designed to nurture, academically challenged students at risk of not meeting their potential in traditional high school. She completed an internship at UW Health Dialysis Clinic and after graduating from Middle College and high school, was hired as a dialysis technician trainee.

Reyes Ponce is continuing her studies and aspires to become a pediatrician.

Her story was featured in the Wisconsin State Journal.
