Hard Work: The “Secret” to Success

Another Successful Pipeline Graduation

IMG_5633Students in Penn Medicine’s High School Pipeline Program do not have it easy. Over the course of the two-year program, they take college courses, work in positions throughout the Health System, receive professional development training and complete their last two years of high school.  

But, in the long run, it’s all worth it. “We’ll be the first in our families to attend college,” said Siani Harris, one of this year’s graduates. “We have juggled college, high school, work -- and even made every meeting -- and are ready to begin college. We can overcome anything!”

Tyler Jackson, a 2014 graduate from the program who is heading into his junior year at St. Joseph’s University, spoke about his own experiences. “I was excited about earning college credits and also to have a job. The program taught me about budgeting time and taking the initiative to solve a program. It helped me create my résumé and prepare for interviews. I tried to carry that level of professionalism into any other activity I participated in.

“But the most valuable lesson was: no matter what assignment comes my way, I need to give it my maximum effort to complete the task,” he continued. “There is no secret to success. If you work hard and seek help when you need it, you’ll be all right.”
