    Default Homeless Teen Determined to Get to School

    Homeless teen sleeps in tent after biking 6 hours to college Associated Press ,

    BARNESVILLE, GA. (AP) - A homeless teenager found sleeping in a tent outside a Georgia college after biking six hours to get there is receiving an outpouring of help and support from across the country.

    Media outlets report police officers discovered 19-year-old Fred Barley on Gordon State College campus last weekend.

    Barley told officers that he rode his little brother's bicycle more than 50 miles from Conyers to Barnesville to register for classes. He planned to stay there until the dorms opened in August.

    Instead of ticketing Barley for trespassing, the officers put him in a motel room.

    Word of Barley's story traveled fast. He was offered a job at a local pizza shop.

    Barnesville resident Casey Blaney set up a GoFundMe page for Barley, which had raised more than $50,000 as of Friday morning.

    Friends have also posted a Facebook Page for Fred.

    I was thinking more about this story and remembered skipping class because I couldn't find a parking spot. What a spoiled baby I was. Cheers to this young man.
