There will be a community screening of "Who Cares about Kelsey?" documentary that is directed by Dan Habib. Come learn about Kelsey Carroll, the road she was headed down, the success she earned and the school who reformed from "overpowering" to "empowering" challenging youth. Sponsored by: UGA School Counseling Program, UGA Office of Service Learning, Rutland Academy, The Cottage/Child Advocacy Center, Nuci's Space, Empowered Youth Programs When Carroll entered high school, she was a more likely candidate for the juvenile justice system than graduation. Diagnosed with ADHD and carrying the emotional scars of homelessness and abuse, as well as the actual scars of repeated self-mutilation, Carroll was volatile, disruptive and, by her own admission, “not a nice person” to be around. As a freshman at Somersworth High School, she didn’t earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. During Carroll's sophomore year, a new school principal implemented dramatic reforms to improve the school’s culture and reduce the dropout rate. This schoolwide overhaul gave Carroll a chance at a different outcome. "Who Cares About Kelsey?" follows Carroll through the ups and downs of her senior year. As the film delves into Carroll's life, viewers watch her navigate the halls and classrooms of her school and the fraught terrain of family and romantic relationships. Carroll interacts with a military father who questions her account of the past and dismisses her plans for the future. She manages her relationship with a mother trying to atone for past failures that set in motion some of Carroll's most destructive behaviors. She spends much of her time with a boyfriend she cherishes but whose loyalty and support for Carroll's newly forming independence are uncertain. Along the way, a team of trusted adults meets with her weekly. She tells them her dreams and fears, planning a future she might never have let herself picture a few years earlier. "Who Cares About Kelsey?" will make viewers reconsider the “problem kids” in their own high schools and spark new conversations about an education revolution that’s about empowering—not overpowering—the most emotionally and behaviorally challenged youth.
