Homeless teen turns life around, gets scholarship
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — A Tennessee teen went from being homeless to getting a full-ride scholarship to college.
Drew Gooch was forced out of his house because his mother's boyfriend was a registered sex offender who could not live with a child.
Gooch left his broken home and just showed up at a school asking for help.
He kept his grades, got a job at McDonald's and now has a brighter future.
"Drew is every teacher's and every principal's dream," said Sumatra Drayton.
"These scholarships are everything to me because without them I would not go to school," said Gooch.
Gooch said he either wants to major in pre-law or pre-med.
