Nigerian-mom-gets to see graduation-video

Michael Tertsea was given a scholarship to leave Nigeria so he could study and play basketball at the John Carroll School outside Baltimore. Of course he jumped at the opportunity–and has been jumping high for four years since then.

When it was time to graduate, his high school school newspaper wrote a story about him and mentioned that his family struggled to make ends meet back home. Fortunately, his classmates decided to secretly raised $1,600 to help bring his mother, Felicia Ikpum, to the U.S. to witness his graduation.
