Student Wins $20,000 Scholarship On Reality Show

A reality show contestant from East Texas wins a prize on last night's final episode.

Gerald Taylor was one of 10 students featured on ABC's The Scholar.

We talked to him last month at Commerce High School, where he graduated in May.

Although Gerald did not win the full scholarship or the $50,000 prizes, he did not go home empty-handed. Wal-Mart awarded him and the rest of the students each a $20,000 scholarship.

Gerald will use it at the University of North Texas.
