LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — Young girls at the Leon County Pace Center are ready to take a big leap into their next adventure.

The Pace Center provides girls in Tallahassee the chance to grow through education, counseling and training.

It's something that's transformed the lives of these young ladies throughout the years including Rikia Jackson, who is going to Tallahassee Community College to be a nurse.

"I was very depressed when I got here," said Jackson. "They just changed me around. I'm very open."

Three graduates from the PACE Center will transition to different schools. Graduation is next week.
