Meet Amon.

Amon is the poster child for Georgia Penn Alliance, Inc. When Amon first came to GPA his grades were suffering terribly. He was in a school that didn’t have the resources to help him excel and he couldn’t seem to escape their worst expectations. Diagnosed ADHD, Anxiety Disorder, Autism Spectrum, Bipolar and Depression it seemed there wasn’t much to hope for.

Amon began his journey with Georgia Penn by receiving funding for his education and daily living. He received his SSI, LISS Funding Grants, ARC of Howard county grants and funds from the Howard County Library System Anime Club. The latter was a program that spends $100,000 annual toward providing the best education possible at the Forbush School (owned by Shepherd Pratt) at Glydon and Hannah More High School.

In addition, Amon is on track to receive DDA and Autism Waiver funding. His grades have improved as he went from being a C/D student to an A/B student. This transformation took place between 7th grade, where his grades suffered the most to currently him being in the 10th grade where his teachers and school administration at Hannah More School have the highest hopes for him.

Because of his affiliation with Georgia Penn Alliance, Amon is now part of Maryland Promise Group, a group dedicated to ensuring Amon receives his Maryland High School Diploma. We are all behind him in expecting him to reach that goal and many more.
