Spencer Hall was about 13 or 14 when his life changed.
"I was at my brother's house," said Hall. "We had the police and social worker knock on my brother's door and tell me that they were taking me into foster care."
Hall bounced around a couple different foster homes before joining the army at 18. Seven years and an associate degree later, he transferred to Colorado State University in Fort Collins.
"I always dreamed, dreamed of being a student at a university," said Hall.
