A Florida high school student managed to graduate with a 4.65 GPA, making him the senior class Valedictorian, while being homeless. Senior Griffin Furlong lost his mother when he was only six-years-old. Shortly after, he lived with his father and older brother in a homeless shelter for two years in Louisville, Kentucky. When Furlong was in sixth grade, he moved with his family to Jacksonville. They lived in a rental house, but there always was a financial struggle. There was always only a little to eat and they persistently had to depend on family members for support. Just a month ago, Furlong found himself homeless again. Finals and AP tests were still ahead, but the Senior kept his head up and never gave in. He will be graduating as Valedictorian on June 2. Even though he is graduating at the top of his class, the determined Senior applied for academic scholarships but has yet to receive good news. He continues to have a positive mindset no matter what. What a truly amazing and inspiring young human being. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
