18-year-old Seth Opoku-Yeboah points to Ghana on the giant map spread across the library wall at Osbourn Park High School. He has never lived in this place, but it has shaped who he is.
Opoku-Yeboah has done something very few people do. He has gone from elementary school to middle school and all the way up through high school without missing one day of classes.
"My parents were both born in Ghana so they didn't really have the chances I had to succeed here," he says. "So I think I owed it to them to do the best that I can and by showing up every day. I did that."
He just graduated from Osbourn Park High School in Manassas with a 3.8 GPA.
"Seth is one of those kids who you only get once in a career, really," says Heather Davids, one of Opoku-Yeboah's teachers.
We asked Opoku-Yeboah to tell us about his activities.
"I'm part of the school newspaper. Part of the Invisible Children Club. I'm part of the soccer team," he says.
Truth be told, Seth is Editor-in-Chief of the paper and co-captain of the soccer team. He is also an officer in the Model United Nations. A pretty modest guy.
Opoku-Yeboah's father works most of each year in Ghana, so his mom is raising five kids.
"I think a lot of the credit goes to her," says Opoku-Yeboah. "She's an amazing woman."
He will try to keep the streak going when he heads to the College of William & Mary in the fall.
