July 12, 2017 was an important day for five participants in the JEVS The Choice is Yours (TCY) program as they received their high school diplomas from Penn Foster Education. At one time, Marisol Mas, Terrence English, Tabitha McNally, Joseph Peralta and Damon Purnell were facing one-to-two-year prison sentences as first-time nonviolent felony drug sellers. Instead, they took the opportunity offered by TCY to pursue education and put themselves on a positive, productive path for the future.

Several local news stations were there to capture this special day for the graduates. Follow the links below to see the clips of the coverage:
