Homeless honor student featured

A homeless honor student, who graduates from North Medford High School this spring, will appear on ABC's 20/20 at 10 p.m. Friday on KDRV Channel 12 as a part of a feature on homeless teens.

"Growing Trend of Troubled Youths in America" by journalist Chris Cuomo is the result of a yearlong investigation, which included interviews with North Medford senior Dakota Garza, a homeless teenager, and Talia Matthias, a case manager for homeless teens at the Maslow Project.

Garza is the recipient of a $10,000 Stand for Children Beat the Odds scholarship and will give opening remarks at a Stand for Children education summit in Medford at 1:15 p.m. Saturday at Medford's Library, 205 S. Central Ave. in Medford.
