Dawn Loggins grew up in a home with no electricity or running water. And before the start of her senior year at Burns High School, where she also works as a janitor, she was abandoned by her parents. Rather than turning her over to the Department of Social Service, school staff and the community of Lawndale, North Carolina decided to become Dawn's family. Dawn is not angry with her parents - she just knows that she wants to make different decisions in her life.
Never give up on your dreams.
