Homeless Teen Graduates High School, Earns College Scholarship

Life for 19-year-old Fred Dukes has not been easy -- but the homeless student graduated from an Atlanta high school last month and earned a scholarship to attend college in South Carolina. The scholarship doesn't cover all of the necessary expenses, however, so Atlanta activist Derrick Boazman and D&K Clothing store arranged a $1,000 shopping spree. The store is also accepting cash donations from shoppers to help this young man realize his college dream. The store has agreed to match every dollar shoppers donate, up to to $5000.
