When Nnamdi Asomugha, the Oakland Raiders’ All-Pro cornerback worth $45 million, saw Kenneth’s story on CNN, he wanted to help. He runs a foundation, the Asomugha College Tour for Scholars, that takes talented inner-city kids on tours of college campuses they otherwise would never be able to see. He’s helped get 25 teens into college over the last four years.

Kenneth, an honors student and president of his class, will be among the 16 students traveling in the spring to visit schools in Washington, D.C.
