BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – Paying for college has never been harder. However, two students from Ramsay High make it look easy.

J’Corion Johnson and Kylah Gooden are outstanding students and their classroom results are encouraging for four-year colleges.

Johnson has now been accepted to over fifty different universities with over $1.5 million in scholarship opportunities.

Her classmate Kylah Gooden has juggled a busy IB course load, academic encouragement and college preparation through the College Choice Foundation throughout the year.

She points out that the money is available for anyone who wants to do the job and wants to thank everyone who helped her get there.

“I didn’t do it alone. It took family, it took time. It also took God doing what I had to do to get here. Just getting the idea after growing up like I did. It really makes me feel like I’m really blessed to have the opportunity, to have the ability to choose which school I want to go to,” Gooden said.

She hasn’t chosen where she wants to go to college yet, but will study business management and mass communication. She hopes to one day start her own business and give back to the community, perhaps starting her own college prep program.
