Keith Rhodes decided in middle school that instead of being influenced by a troublemaker, he would make good grades and set an example for others. “I could have been that statistic that everyone talks about—a child in a single-parent household, living in poverty, getting in trouble, and becoming just a number,” he observed. “A lot of my friends took a different path than me, but I’m not a number, I did make it out, and I can make a difference.”
