DelShawn Fowler was determined to be the first in his family to graduate from college. However, what was supposed to be a dream trip for DelShawn almost turned into a nightmare.
For many Midnight Golf Program students, the annual Road Trip for Success College Tour is an opportunity to experience a college campus, bond with their classmates and mentors and play golf at some of the most prestigious golf courses in the country.
The morning of his Road Trip for Success trip, DelShawn accidentally overslept and missed the bus. He had no other choice but to take an Uber to meet up with the tour at its first stop at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
The Uber fare for that trip was $136, but for DelShawn it could have cost him much more. This June, DelShawn became the first person to his family to graduate from college when he graduated from Harris Stowe State University with a degree in Biology.
