Las Vegas mom overcomes loss and graduates from CSN
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
On Monday, a record number of students will walk across the stage at the College of Southern Nevada's graduation.
More than 3,500 students will graduate in CSN'S 46th annual commencement.
Among those graduates is Jadee Glover, a local mom who is spending this Mother’s Day celebrating hard work while overcoming loss with new life.
Jadee Glover’s story is one of perseverance -- of seeing the forest for the trees. It’s of loss and of addition and the realization that when you have your mind set on something, you have to see it through.
Jadee Glover's story is one of motherhood.
“I always had an inkling in the back of my mind that if it's meant to be, I’d do it,” Jadee said.
To tell her story, we have to go back to 2016. Glover was a student at the College of Southern Nevada.
Glover's mother passed away, losing her battle with renal failure.
Just three weeks later, Jadee found out she was pregnant.
“I honestly feel like he’s the reincarnation,” Glover said. “She went up, he came down.”
At the beginning of this school year, on the first day, Glover went into premature labor.
“When I went into labor, I was sitting there trying to catch up on some homework,” said Glover. “And my doctors are like, 'What are you doing? You have to have this baby!'"
A single mother who recently lost her own mom, Glover stared at the difficult road ahead and went for it.
She is set to graduate with honors, and will now walk across the stage at CSN on Monday
