How could...

a boy, who fell through the social work system, end up in high school with a 0.6 GPA and graduate High School with a 2.52 GPA? I'll tell you how...his adoptive parents, school officials, tutor, and FAMILY around Mr. Michael Oher made this possible.

The teachers at his school, finally in high school, helped him learn and understand the material being presented to him. They could have failed him and weakened his self esteem even more...but they chose to take his learning one step/day at a time and with that...Michael Oher graduated high school.

I am still amazed at how Michael Oher went from the streets to being a NFL player.
