Homeless Teen Named Tupac Earns $3M in Scholarships as High School Valedictorian

Memphis, TN — Tupac Mosley, a 17-year old high school senior, graduated as the class valedictorian at Raleigh Egypt High School in Tennessee and earned more than $3 million in scholarships. And he achieved all that despite the challenges of being homeless!

“When I heard that I got $3 million, I was more than elated and excited and astonished that it was that much,” Mosley told Fox 13. He also got accepted to more than 40 schools.
Just recently, Tupac’s father died and his family fell behind bills. They ultimately got evicted from their home last February and since then, they stayed in different homes around Memphis.

Thankfully, they found out about For the Kingdom, a nonprofit organization that supports urban children and teens to lead them in the right direction and also provides a camping site. Tupac was grateful that he was allowed to stay there with his family.

Although he frequently moved to different houses and he was always not sure how he could continue going to school, Tupac maintained a 4.3 GPA which is the highest in his class.

During his graduation speech, he thanked his teachers and principal for believing in him. He also encouraged his fellow graduates to believe in themselves and work hard and they will be able to achieve anything they want.

“Never let your current situation, whatever circumstances you’re going through, be a mountain that you can’t climb,” Mosley said.

Mosley is set to enroll at Tennessee State University in the fall and major in electrical engineering.
