Daniel’s face beamed as he neared the finish line of my town’s first soapbox derby last week.

He’d been working for four weeks with a mentor (not me; I concentrate on his academics) to build the car. Painted it black. Tricked it out. And spent time practicing on a challenging mountain road.

Daniel was happy not because he thought he’d won. He didn’t know at that point. But because his run down the much-easier course was the culmination of his turning his life around academically.
