25. High School Drop Out
Walk Disney dropped out of high school at the age of 16 hoping to join the United States Army. Because of his age he was turned down. Looking to make an impact, he continued his search, drawing patriotic cartoons for his school newspaper, and ended up as an ambulance driver in France working for the Red Cross. There are plenty of stories about successful drop outs, but this is one fact that most kids should probably not be told.
