Twenty-one years after Treveles appeared on The Oprah Show, he and Clayton still have a strong bond. Treveles says Clayton's intervention changed his life. "When he reached out to me, that really touched my heart that somebody cared enough for me in order to help me," he says.
Today, Treveles is married with two children, works in a bank and attends college part time as a business management major. He also mentors inner-city youth.
Treveles says he has something to tell Clayton, the positive male role model in his life. "Thank you for reaching out to me, helping me, being a mentor to me and helping me be the man I am today."
"You're welcome," Clayton says.
