Townsend grad balanced motherhood, academics


SANDUSKY — Syanna Alexander’s path to success was three years in the making.

Along the way, she learned how to balance being a mother and a student.

The Sandusky resident was among more than 300 students who graduated from Townsend Community School Tuesday evening at the Sandusky State Theatre.

At her previous school, Syanna, 18, struggled in her classes.

She said she read great things about Townsend and, after talking it over with her mother, decided to enroll at the charter school.
