HIGH POINT, N.C. — A High Point man has created a website in an effort to raise $14,000 so he can return to college.

According to the Greensboro News & Record, Corey Arvinger needs that amount to return to Howard University in Washington.  The 21-year-old was reportedly studying international business until he lost his financial aid due to academic probation. 

He told the News & Record, “I tell people when I get back (to school), I will guarantee a 4.0.”

Arvinger, a 2010 graduate of Greensboro Day School, set up 4for14000.com to facilitate the idea. 

He tells the paper he’s already received about $2,400 in donations.  He has also been working at a jewelry store while back in High Point.  His mother has taken up extra work by coaching at Kernodle Middle School where she teaches.
