He is the essence of academic excellence, breezing through calculus, steam-rolling through trigonometry. He aced his College Boards--not only the SAT but the three achievement tests in math, writing and physics as well. He is one of only 71 California high school students named a candidate for the 2001 Presidential Scholarship, among the nation's most prestigious academic awards. But, most amazing of all, Trevor Loflin did it all while homeless.

Nick Rodriguez of Oak Park wasn't expecting to score a perfect 1600 on the Scholastic Assessment Test. "It just kind of happened," said the 17-year-old, who, with a cumulative grade point average of 4.38, starts his senior year at Oak Park High next week. Nick, who has also earned high scores on six Advanced Placement exams, is setting his sights on a first-rank college. He lists Harvard and UC Berkeley among the universities he is considering.

The good luck has been handed down from one student to the next through a note in the yearbook.
