  • It was so tempting to quit that last year though, when I found out that the factory I worked in was paying me a $1.50 less per hour, than any other employee doing the same job just because I was still in high school

      Napoleon High School was my final high school. Can you believe I graduated after attending seven different high schools. It was not an easy road though for me.

      I quit for a year between the eleventh and twelfth grade because the principle of one of the schools messed me up from graduating in three years and therefore going to college. So when I finally went back to school the next year, I was married, pregnant


      and worked a full time job.

      It was so tempting to quit that last year though, when I found out that the factory I worked in was paying me a $1. 50 less per hour, than any other employee doing the same job just because I was still in high school.

      I find it ridiculous that they should be able to do that type of thing but that is just one example of the many ...


      • forms of discrimination I have experienced in my many years. One thing I did like was that Napoleon offered OWE.

        Which is a occupational work experience class. I went to school until noon and then I went to work from 3 to 11.

        Every six weeks I had to take a form in for my boss to give me a grade as part of my school credit. The class was so easy that I could

        sleep through it.

        I had already taken algebra I, algebra II and geometry and in this class they taught basic math, English, science and history. There were many days that I really did fall asleep in class especially when I worked a ten hours shift at the factory.

        However I always passed my test with flying colors so the instructor did not care. That was great for me because I would have probably quit otherwise.
