An exceptional young Lady named Lamyrical Harris has set an outstanding record after emerging as the first-ever student of Trezevant High School in Tennessee that will win a $1 million scholarship to college.
Lamyrical Harris gave birth to a son while in junior class and despite being faced with the responsibility of taking care of her child, she emerged as the school’s valedictorian.
Her exceptional academic performance got her accepted into more than 24 universities across the United States securing her scholarship awards of $1,244,298. She narrated that her motivation to work harder spiked when she had her son.
“I was scared. It just made me go 10 times harder,” she told the news station.
The birth of her son inspired her to work 10 times harder in high school and at the end of the first academic year when she returned to the junior class, she had earned $200,000 in scholarships.
Harris explained further that by the start of her senior year, she had secured a whopping $500,000 and later surpassed the million-dollar mark at graduation.
Lamyrical Harris’s $1,244,298 scholarship awards also made her the first-ever graduate of Trezevant High School in Memphis, Tennessee to surpass the one million mark.
Celebrating her achievement, the school through a Facebook post congratulated her and her son for the remarkable achievement. “We have our first MILLION DOLLAR SCHOLAR in Trezevant history,” the school announced.
“Our valedictorian, Lamyrical Harris, has been offered a total of $1,244,298 in ACADEMIC scholarships, making her our first to receive this honor. While we’ve had some amazing athletes throughout Trezevant history, she is the first to earn this amount solely in academic scholarships,” the post continued.
“The class of 2019 continues to break records and leave its mark on THS forever. Congratulations Lamyrical,” the school added.
