With high school and college graduations rapidly approaching, I thought it would be good to share with you the success of some of these young people. Above is a video of a young man that someone told me about at work. He graduated in 2010 and was the valedictorian of his class. His speech is awesome and will bring you to tears. He received over one million dollars in scholarships. A few current students are listed below and all of them have been accepted into all eight Ivy League schools.
