He worked three jobs to pay for his tuition in college. He worked as a cook, a pizza delivery guy and a packer in factories. Changed his status from full time to part time student until, in the middle of it all, he managed to get a loan approval for his education. Due to the struggles Mr. Calloway had to go through, he lived his life by making sure his sons would never have to feel such struggles in life like he did: the struggle to receive education and the grief you feel after losing a loved one (as George had lost his mother at a very young age).
