Walking graduate’s dedication rewarded

U.S. & World

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WVTM) An Alabama teen received a special graduation gift after a photo of him walking home from graduation went viral.

The photo of the Birmingham high school student Corey Patrick was posted to Facebook, and was spotted by a group of celebrities who wanted to help him out.

Radio host Rickey Smiley worked to get Patrick a new SUV. Tyrese, Mike Epps and Da Brat helped with the car giveaway, too.

All school year, Patrick woke up at 4 a.m. to walk to the bus stop to get to Tarrant High School after moving out of the district.
