Written by James Madison High School on Wednesday, 01 July 2015. Posted in Success Stories

Molly Marie Svrcina, a JMHS graduate and former American Idol contestant, knows that hard work and initiative can equal success. As you get closer to achieving your JMHS high school diploma, use Molly Marie's drive as a source of inspiration.

A Full Plate

Molly, from Ypsilanti, Michigan, began singing at an early age, and traveled all over the Michigan and Ohio singing at local venues. Then at age 12 in 2008, she traveled to Nashville to entertain at a command performance at Nichols Bandshell. She quickly became a YouTube sensation with her classic covers such as "The Night the Lights went out in Georgia". Molly Marie made history when at age fifteen she won the USA Songwriting Competition. Molly, with writers Troy Johnson and Jack Williams, wrote "Go There" and won in the country category. She did all this while studying at our JMHS online high school. Her busy schedule and our online high school program meshed well for this busy teenager. Her plate was heavy, but her desire and drive exceeded its weight.

Mirror Molly Marie

Molly now attends Liberty University and continues to pursue her singing career. Her drive and desire to do well, bolstered by our support team at JMHS can be a mirror for you to model after, as you get closer to your high school diploma.
