The move to West End meant he might not be able to continue his senior high in the same school due to the long distance.
But this also meant that he would wake up daily at 4 am, walk some distance and then catch a bus to school at 5:41 am.
He successfully did that, even on his graduation day, he wore his graduation gown and, as usual, woke by 4am and walked the same distance to catch a bus.
It was on this final day that he was photographed by the bus driver who picked him up.
The driver posted the photo with the caption:
“You tell me this ain’t determination…Sometimes, it’s all in what you want out of life. He didn’t have the best, but he was the best in my eyes. I was so proud of this black young man.”
After the story went viral, Corey, who already has a university scholarship, was invited to appear in a radio show hosted by Rickey Smiley.
Rickey Smiley praised Corey’s determination and announced the gift of a new car for him.
