Homeschooler wins "The Scholar"

Scot from New Freedom, PA won last nights competition and $50,000 and advances to the finals. His bio from the TV show "The Scholar" on ABC tells of a very determined young man.
Home-schooled his entire life, this incredibly thoughtful and determined young man is bound for great things. With a 4.0 GPA and near perfect SAT scores, Scot was not only home-schooled but also self-taught for most of his primary and secondary education. He currently works four jobs, sometimes up to 80 hours a week, to help support his family and save for college. A black belt in the martial arts discipline of Tae Kwon Do, he is a determined and disciplined athlete, in addition to being one smart cookie. Admittedly cut from a different cloth, Scot hopes to one day be a lawyer, an investment banker or... a beatnik poet.

Congratulations. It's nice to see hard work paying off.

Thanks to Millenium Hippies for the tip. She saw the show and talked about it on her blog today.
