Stevie heads west to the small city of Bethel in time for a special visit by Kendrick Lamar of MTV fame, hosted by MTV and Taco Bell for the winners of this year's National Future Forward Challenge!

The National Future Forward Challenge is part of the Get Schooled Program, a three month competition created to improve high school graduation and college ready rates. Schools from 14 states participated in this year's competition, but the tiny town of Bethel was the crown jewel, with Bethel High School taking the win, earning their students a chance to meet Kendrick Lamar, along with other VIPs like James Harden, Houston Rockets guard and Team USA gold medalist, and Taco Bell CEO Greg Creed.
