Ya know what? I really thought I was going to do my post today based on the live video on The Bull's Facebook Page... But I'd rather talk about this kid from Jacksonville, Florida! We all know that graduating from high school is different for the class of 2020 and we know it hasn't been easy. I have to say kudos to this kid for not ONLY pulling off Valedictorian DURING a pandemic but also being homeless according to CBS47-Fox30 Action News JAX!
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —Overcoming obstacles is just what A. Philip Randolph senior Martin Folsom does.
Despite living in shelters with his mom, Martin finished top of his class.
Despite being homeless and living in shelters with his mom, Martin finished top of his class -- and while he didn’t get to walk across the stage due to the pandemic, his accomplishments can never be taken away.
This is a great story of perseverance and CONGRATS to Martin Folsom and the Class of 2020! You made it!!!
