Ivy League Education Leaves Man Homeless


Sometimes people think that an Ivy League education will guarantee success in life. Well, it all depends on your vision of success.

Ted Pascoe and I attended Dartmouth around the same time. Now he’s homeless.

By choice.

Sometimes you just have to take a stand. The non-profit program Ted runs for homeless seniors in Denver suffered a severe budget cut at the hands of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG). Incensed, Ted has decided to join his clients–by sleeping on the streets.

Some may call it crazy. Others will call it leadership. Ted is a gutsy guy. And get this: his mom is proud of him. Not many Ivy League grads would be so lucky.
