S. L. Young’s conversation on “Real Talk with Rashad Richey” on WOAK in Atlanta, GA on 6/19/15.

This discussion is about Mr. Young’s incredible journey from at-risk student to high school commencement speaker — in the same district that directed him to leave school in 10th grade after failing 6 of 7 classes.  This inspirational story is even more moving because Mr. Young’s mentee graduated during the same event.
