  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: It`s Friday. That`s awesome.

  • I`m Carl. This is CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • Today we`re going to talk about paying for college, and here how performer takes on bullying.

  • But first, we got something about Syria that United Nations representative called the first hopeful news in the very long time.

  • The fighting in Syria has been going on since early 2011.

  • Reports say more than 70,000 people have been killed.

  • It started with protests against the Syrian government.

  • That country`s military cracked down on the protesters,

  • eventually rebels armed themselves and started fighting against the government forces.

  • Some people have talked about the international community getting involved by sending troops.

  • This week, we heard about a possible diplomatic solution.

  • On the left here, is U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

  • On the right, is Russia`s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov.

  • They said their countries want to set up a conference as soon as possible to work on forming a new government for Syria.

  • If that happens, this meeting would be the first time that the sides fighting in Syria would come together to negotiate.

  • In Massachusetts, the question of where to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev seems to be settled.

  • Earlier in the week, a funeral director said he couldn`t find a cemetery to accept the body of the Boston terror bombing suspect.

  • SGT. KERRY HAZELHURST, WORCESTER POLICE DEPT.: As result of our public appeal for help,

  • a courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased.

  • His body is no longer in the city of Worcester, and is now entombed.

  • AZUZ: Police didn`t say where the burial site is, but they thanked the community that provided it.

  • Today`s "Shoutout" goes out to Mr. Lane`s science class at Mary Harris Intermediate in Fort Worth, Texas.

  • What is the oldest college or university in the United States.

  • Here we go. Is it William and Mary, Harvard, Rutgers or Princeton?

  • You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • Harvard University was founded in 1636, making it the oldest institution of higher learning in the U.S.

  • That`s your answer and that`s your "Shoutout."

  • Student loan debt is soaring.

  • The American Institute of CPAs recently took a survey of student loan borrowers,

  • and found the money they owe has made some of them postpone buying cars or houses, in some cases even delay getting married.

  • What`s more, 60 percent of them said they have some regret about taking out student loans.

  • So, what`s a student who`s planning on college to do?

  • When education savings account is a good start, you`re never too young to put money aside.

  • Even a small scholarship can help with tuition and shrink down a loan and there are often grants available.

  • Federal, state and private, that can save you money if you qualify. .

  • Work study programs may enable you to pay as you go without rocking up so much debt

  • There`s also this: not every well paying job requires a four-year college degree.

  • Dental hygienist may only have an associate`s degree, but can work their way up to a $68,000 salary.

  • And with a formal apprenticeship, you can work in construction of mechanical trades earning 50,000 or more.

  • So think about the higher education you need before committing to college.

  • And remember that while student loans are one way of paying, they are not always the only way.

  • Kayla Wheeler is thinking about where she wants to go to college, but before she moves into a dorm,

  • she`ll compete in a world championship swimming competition.

  • Dana Rebik of affiliate KCPQ in Washington State tells us more about the accomplishments of this high school junior.

  • KAYLA WHEELER, PARALYMPIC SWIMMER: I`ve got female swimmer of the day all three days and swimmer of the meet,

  • as well as the gold medal and everything I swam.

  • These are the medals that I got for getting first ...

  • DANA REBIK, CNN CORRESSPONDENT: The Mountlake Terrace High School junior holds the Paralympic world record in the 15 meter butterfly.

  • She`s competed in Mexico Brazin and the Netherlands

  • JOYCE WHEELER, KAYLA`S MOTHER: And just when you think she can`t do any better, she does it again.

  • REBIK: Kayla`s mom Joyce started her daughter in swim lessons after a doctor recommended hydrotherapy for Kayla`s disability.

  • The 16-year old was born with no legs and only one arm.

  • JOYCE WHEELER: It`s kind of indescribable.

  • I mean, you know, when they announce her name representing the United States, I mean I just get goosebumps all over.

  • Even still, you know, I`m just so amazed that that`s my child.

  • WHEELER: I`m really heavy in extracurriculars.

  • REBIK: Aside from swimming ...

  • KAYLA WHEELER: Yes!

  • REBIK: She bowls,

  • skies

  • and plays baseball.

  • JOYCE WHEELER: We`re always told her there is nothing you can`t do,

  • we just might have to figure out a different way for you to do it and she has pushed the envelope.

  • REBIK: That is an understatement.

  • Kayla is under Rocketry and Robotics Team and is taking advanced classes at Edmonds Community College,

  • an amazing inspiration, both in an out of the water.

  • KAYLA WHEELER: I also like being able to represent my country, that`s pretty amazing.

  • Breaking records is always fun, too, and getting medals and stuff,

  • but it`s - I like really being out there as a role model for other people.

  • AZUZ: See if you can ID me.

  • I`m an art form, often involved in poetry.

  • I might have lines that rhyme, but it`s not required.

  • I`m usually performed by speaking out loud.

  • In fact, that`s in my name.

  • I`m spoken word poetry. And I don`t have a specific meter or pattern.

  • It`s the kind of poetry that Shane Koyczan performs.

  • One of his poems is called "To This Day," is about the kind of impact that bullying can have on people.

  • It`s something Shane dealt with when he was younger,

  • and now he hopes his words can help others who might be facing similar struggles.

  • SHANE KOYCZAN, POET: The video is called "To This Day", it`s a piece that I wrote probably about three years ago,

  • and it was really just to serve, you know, put an armor on the shoulders of people who may not have that in their lives.

  • Sometimes the sense of comfort can be enough or a sense of camaraderie can help you get through it half time.

  • It was done out of compassion, it was done because I understand what people are going through, I`ve been through it myself.

  • (voice over): Of the school halls were battleground, we found ourselves out number day after wretched day we used to stay inside the recess, because outside was worse.

  • (on camera): You know people say all the time, oh we talk about bullying it doesn`t do anything, It does do something.

  • I was raised in time where nobody talked about bullying, and it was devastating to walk through halls.

  • There are no anti-bullying posters, there are no messages from celebrities saying,

  • hey, you know, it`s OK, like maintain who you are, be who you are - we didn`t have any of that, and that was -

  • that was very isolating and you felt very alone.

  • (voice over): And if you can`t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror,

  • look a little closer, stare a little longer

  • because there`s something inside you that makes you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit ...

  • (on camera): I think it`s - it`s a little bit comforting to know that people are so passionate about - talking about this.

  • It does mean that we do care, like if it did really does demonstrate that.

  • You know, it`s like we don`t have a solution, but we are trying, at least we`re trying.

  • That was the point behind the project was to really show people that you`re not alone.

  • (voice over): But our live will only ever always continue to be a balancing act.

  • That does less to do with pain and more to do with beauty.

  • AZUZ: Good stuff. Your voice now on the controversy surrounding a shirt made in memory of a Missouri student.

  • We covered that earlier this week.

  • Morgan says, she understands the shirt is a symbol to remember a loved one,

  • but you have to think of others and what it might mean to them.

  • Some view it as a sign of racism.

  • Charles says, the flag itself has changed from a racism symbol into a Southern pride flag.

  • "I think it should be allowed, if you openly express it`s pride, not prejudice."

  • From JaiQuanna, "I understand if a family wants to find a symbol to remember a loved one,

  • but to put that flag on a shirt is disrespectful to many people.

  • From Steven, "The flag is an object that represents Southern independence. I say, let it stay."

  • Tiger wrote, "It`s true the heritage is big in defining someone, but when going against an established school policy,

  • I`d like to think Colby`s friends and family could have found another way to represent his life."

  • To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, we`ve been sharing some of the I-reports you`ve sent in like this one:

  • UNIDENTIFIED BOYS: We love you, Mrs. Morton (ph), this much.

  • UNIDENTIFIED BOY: Wow, this is awesome. Just like Mrs. Morton.

  • UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: Mrs. Morton you (inaudible).

  • UNIDENTIFIED BOY: Mrs. Morton is a phenomenal teacher.

  • UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: She`s by far one of the cool teachers I`ve ever met.

  • UNIDENTIFIED BOY: Mrs. Martin, you`re seriously the best AP government teacher I`ve ever had. Hands down.

  • AZUZ: Check out more of those I-reports. Go to CNNSTUDENTNEWS.COM.

  • While you`re there, you can go to our blog and give a shoutout to your favorite teacher.

  • Another story of appreciation closes out today`s show.

  • After a game recently, Dodgers all star Matt Kemp came over to meet Josh Jones.

  • Josh is 19. Huge Dodgers` fan and he`s fighting cancer.

  • In this Youtube video you could see Kemp sign a ball for him, then he decided to give Josh his hat and his jersey.

  • Then he took off his cleats and handed those over too.

  • Kemp said he just wanted to give Josh a memory he`d never forget.

  • If that`s what he was going for - he knocked it out of the park.

  • It`s time for us to run, teachers don`t forget to show your feedback about today`s show on our homepage.

  • I hope all of you have a great weekend, and if you`re watching on HLN, we now join HLN`s programming in progress.
