Homeless Teen Becomes Valedictorian

Friday Feel Good: Homeless Teen Becomes Valedictorian

In the midst of graduation season, here's a feel-good story to kick off your weekend. Chelesa Fearce, 17, became her school's valedictorian despite being homeless for much of high school. A local Atlanta TV station caught up with Chelesa, who shared her journey to getting a 4.466 GPA and 1900 on her SATs. Even if you don't know the current SAT scale (it's 2400), that sounds pretty legit. Not impressed enough already? She's starting at Spelman College in the Fall as a junior, since she already has enough college credit. Watch Chelesa tell her story in this clip.
