Why would he take a pay cut to teach.

Beautiful story, inspirational story. Never give up. You can achieve your goals if you work at it hard enough and long enough. I can honestly say this because I graduated from college in my fifties after raising three kids as a single parent. And I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Nova Southeastern University. I didn't do it to gain economic gain, I did it because, as a member of a family of seven children, I needed to join the rest of them as a college graduate to honor my parents. I was the last to graduate but I did graduate. It didn't change my life much, to be honest, I had already created a successful career but it did give me a sense of satisfaction and that I had honored my parents who had always encouraged us towards education.

The janitor didn't have to pay anyone to do his schoolwork for him and didn't threaten his school with lawsuits if they ever revealed his grades.

Trump did both those things. Because he's such a genius.

Schoolchildren need strong role models, and in this case got one. I hope they all learned from what they observed, and also hope Mr. Harris has everything go his way from now on--he deserves it...
