Writer credits Cooperrider for turning his life around


This is to let the people know that Judge Cooperrider helped me more than she'll ever know. For one reason, she helped me to realize the error of my ways and that the road I was headed down would crush my dreams.

My dream is law enforcement, which I am currently enrolled into at Tri-County Vocational School and without Judge Luann Cooperrider's tenacity and giving me two chances I would not be living out my dreams today. So, with a little encouragement from Mrs. Cooperrider and Strive to Succeed, anyone can live their dreams, too.
