12 For Life
Southwire Company and Carroll County Schools formed a partnership and founded a unique program for at-risk high school students called 12 for Life in Carrollton, Georgia. In 2007, the graduation rate in Carroll County was 65% with 55% being economically disadvantaged. Now, more than ten years later, the graduation rate has reached 93%. The program has since expanded to seven different school systems, including a secondary location in Florence, Alabama.
