Michael Barlow – Part III

by Jan Schroder

– Click/Watch video by Mehran Moin

One teacher’s intervention was what Michael Barlow now calls his “True Sputnik Moment,” leading the young Atlanta public high school student to change the path of his life.

In this video, the “former troublemaker” and current West Point cadet recalls how his commitment to the Odyssey program led to him competing against Warren Buffett and Bill Gates in a national bridge tournament, to “acing” his ACT and SAT tests and admission to every college to which he applied.

Consider supporting other Atlanta public high school students visiting colleges this year. Donate to Odyssey, a public-private partnership, at this Odyssey link.
