Homeless Teen Makes 4.3 GPA, Becomes Valedictorian, And Gets More Than $3 Million In Scholarships

Memphis, Tennessee high school valedictorian Tupac Mosley has much more to celebrate than his recent high school graduation. The teen has been awarded in excess of $3 million in college scholarships.

Making his top-of-the-class status and the scholarships more impressive is the fact that since the death of his father in 2017, his family struggled financially and became homeless earlier this year.

Tupac said that the lowest point of his life was having to sleep on motel room floors, but he continued to apply himself to his studies. He remains thankful for his support system for their role in his success.

“If it wasn’t for my friends and family, teachers and counselors who kept me going through it all, I might not be in this position today. They gave me the courage to carry on and never give up. To see my work in a quantifiable way is so rewarding. It’s a great feeling.” Mosley told BBC news.

At graduation, during his speech, he thanked the school’s principal and paid tribute to the director of the campsite and nonprofit, For the Kingdom, that provided his family a place to stay. He says that when the director learned of the family’s homelessness, he let them stay there so they could raise needed funds to secure a new residence.
