In 2011 Present Obama wrote a letter to a young man named Jesse Grainger, advising him that he complete his education. This was a response to a letter a young man wrote to him about challenges he faced in his life and concerns he had about completing his education. Now, that young man is selling that letter for $9,500 to help pay his tuition bill.
According to the New York Post, Grainger wrote in his letter to President Obama, “As a child I had big dreams of going to college and doing great things .?.?. I came from a small town where most people were poor, especially my mother and me. My mom adopted me when I was one day old. She raised me to believe that education was the most important thing that I could ever get. My adopted mom died when I was 13.” The young man goes on to talk about his concerns about completing and paying for his education.
The young man was eventually taken in by a family in South Carolina, while attending community college. He was later admitted to Winthrop University where he planned to pursue a degree in social work.
