Haven For Hope Celebrates First College Attendee

Alejandro “Alex”  Gonzales will be wearing Baylor colors next fall, and getting there has been no small feat.

Last week while the Baylor Bears visited San Antonio to participate in the 2011 Alamo Bowl, they joined Haven For Hope in celebrating and welcoming Alex as the newest Baylor Bear. You see, Alex isn’t your typical high school senior. He’s a success story.

Despite the challenges of transitional living, he managed to not only stay focused on graduating from Lady Bird Johnson High School, he has also been accepted to attend Baylor University. He could have easily succumbed to life’s challenges; yet, Alex has persevered. He is Haven For Hope’s first high school senior to gain admission to a major university.
