In a Facebook post, Joseph Valadez says he finished his last two semesters on the “President’s Honor List” for getting straight A’s.
He also made the Dean’s List, graduating with a 3.67 GPA.
“There’s a misconception about guys like me that I want to break. If I can do it, anyone can,” said Valadez.
He’s currently awaiting acceptance to the master’s program in social work at the university.
