PFW Story

New Beginnings

Living in southern Indiana, La’Kendra Deitche, B.A. ’21, experienced a horrible childhood with epileptic seizures, an absent father, and a mother who relinquished parental rights to her when she was just 13. Deitch was rescued by a group of South Side High School teachers and then a group of Purdue Fort Wayne faculty and staff who guided her to overcome obstacles and build success.

She never gave up, because PFW always encouraged her to find new beginnings.
