Joshua's path to academic success was long and arduous. In ninth grade, Josh's reading and writing skills ranged from a 2nd to 4th grade level. Eventually, he dropped out of school. Since his incarceration in 2005, however, Josh received his GED and completed a Paralegal Program with highest distinction. He also completed a class through Xavier University, a program in Psychology and Social Work, and he is currently working on becoming a Canine Specialist. After that, he would like to complete an Associates and Bachelor's Degree through either Adams State University or Ohio University.
