Ears that stand ready at attention and brown eyes that beg for love (but more importantly, food). A tongue that lolls to the side to reveal a toothy smile. Four feet that are waiting to be taken on a walk. A stocky pitbull body that wants to snuggle in for the night.
Her name is Gracey. She just celebrated her eighth birthday. She’s been waiting for a forever home for a little over two years.

Look at Jenna Kehoe.
Standing at five feet six inches, golden curls falling neatly, and bright blue eyes that shine like spotlights.
Her radiant smile lights up the room, as she exudes care and bravery.
Standing next to her, always glued to her side, is a mirror image of herself.
Hailey Kehoe holds the same warmth and identical curls frame her face.

A white Ford Explorer SUV is parked in front of a beach house. Inside the car, the windows are wiped down, the interior is dusted, leather seats are free of any spills, and the carpet is vacuumed with no stains. It’s a spotless car from the inside to the outside.
There is something unique about the person that drives it. In the back seat there is a sign that reads Amenities. There’s water, candy, snacks, gum, mints, tissues, wet wipes, a lint roller, hand sanitizer, Febreze, car sick bags, and acetaminophen. There’s even a tip jar for people that want to tip for great service.

In Red Lion there are a handful of first generation students who juggle the best of both worlds, from regular schooling, working on subjects such as language arts and math to going home, speaking different languages, and having completely different customs and traditions.
First-generations are people who are the first in their family to grow up in the United States. They are a unique group of people who go into the world knowing very little, and have to adapt to several cultures and ways of living, at the same time.
