Is there any better feeling than starting your first semester of college?
YES! Not having to pay for it!
Ball State University freshman Markus Burden of Frankfort, Ill was challenegd to make a half-court shot at a Welcome Week event for a semester of free tuition.
And he nailed it on his fourth and final try!
The tuition is valued at $11,084 since he’s an out-of-state student. Burden said it was overwhelming, and when his mom heard, she started crying, adding:
“It just gives us a lot of breathing room right now.”
What a great story!
That’s what we call starting off school on the right foot!
