CLEVELAND -- It's a story of hope and determination as a Cleveland teen, once homeless, has his choice of Ivy League colleges.

David Boone is the type of person you never forget. His story is just as unforgettable.

"I don't want my story to define me, but what I do now to define me," says David Boone, a senior at MC2 Stem High School.

He grew up in Cleveland, was targeted by gangs, and ended up homeless. His principal even took him in.

Now, he has been accepted to 22 different colleges and they are among the most prestigious. He has it narrowed down to Harvard and Princeton.

He will have to decide by next Tuesday. Education Reporter Kim Wheeler has his incredible story.
