Rawlin Lee Tate, Jr., an 18-year-old from Stockbridge, Georgia, has made history as the first black male valedictorian in his high school. More than that, he secured $1.3 million in college scholarships. Tate had a 4.7 GPA, was top in his class for seven years, was honored as a Georgia Scholar, and took 21 AP courses and never got a grade lower than 98.
Tate has been accepted at 14 colleges, and will attend North Carolina A&T to earn a degree in mechanical engineering on a full academic scholarship. He also excels in extracurricular activities. He has played two varsity sports and been inducted into seven honor societies. He was part of the school band, and taught himself how to play the piano. Oh, and he's also a rapper. He says he knows he has more to learn, and is not afraid to ask questions.
