HOUSTON — When Zachery Johnson first said his dream was to attend Texas Southern University and METRO was going to get him there, he was probably envisioning bus tokens and reliable routes.
Johnson, 18, is a drum major for Kashmere High School's Thunder Soul Marching Band with dreams of joining the Ocean Soul band after graduation.
Over the weekend, TSU presented him with a $30,000 four-year scholarship.
Johnson said he wants to major in education and minor in entertainment.
"It means the world to me to know that I'm blessed to have this amount of money in scholarship going towards me. To me, it feels like I can do something in life. I'm not just settling for less. I can do something greater in life," Johnson told NewsFix.
