Homeless teen graduates high school with 3.7 GPA
Pulling good grades in high school is tough for lots of kids, but almost all of them have it easier than Daniel Lazzatti. The 18-year-old senior will graduate on Saturday with a 3.7 average -- and he's homeless.
When the story broke that Lazzatti had been living in a shed in his friends backyard and biking to school everyday, a number of community members came forward, offering him everything from money to cars to shelter. It's expected that kind of generosity will only multiply when the story airs nationally on the CBS Evening News.
But he doesn't want the help. He told his local TV station: "If people really use this inspirational story in their everyday lives to make them work better, then I would feel a lot better."
Sounds like a classy kid.
