    Keshawn ranks third in his class, and he's the president of the theater and Spanish honor societies, as well as a member of the UNICEF and poetry clubs.

                   

    "Who would have thought that, me, a kid from Evans, from Pine Hills, receiving $100,000,” Morgan said.

     

    Morgan is the only boy in the top 20 of his graduating class.
