For five years, from the age of 12 to 17, Craigmont High School graduate Kevuntez King saved enough money to pay off his college tuition by selling newspapers in his neighborhood.

According to WMC Action News 5 King used hard work, planning and dedication to earn enough money to pay for college before he even starts.

“I just stay away from the negativity and try to always be positive,” the Tennessee native King said.

King said he grew up in a single-parent home with his mother, whose influence paved his way to success.
