Teen sells newspapers for 5 years, earns enough to pay off college before he even starts
MEMPHIS — A teenage boy in Tennessee used hard work, planning and dedication to earn enough money to pay for college before he even starts.
“I just stay away from the negativity and try to always be positive,” Kevuntez King told WHBQ.
King said he grew up in a single-parent home with his mother, whose influence paved his way to success.
From age 12 to 17, King sold newspapers with one goal: earn enough to pay for his entire college education. And he did just that.
He earned $200 every Sunday for five years straight and was just accepted into Tennessee State University.
