JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A counselor at Edward White High School gave one Jacksonville father a creative solution to keep his son in high school. The father's way of saying "thank you" was even more creative.

Anthony Armstrong says his son was falling behind in school until he found Florida Youth ChalleNGe Academy, located at Camp Blanding in Starke. This branch of the National Guard Youth Challenge Program specializes in teaching leadership, life coping skills and helping at-risk teens get a diploma.

Armstrong says he produced the video in three to four months. Mobile users, play video here: http://fcnews.tv/VEPy3t
