Chris Gray, the Drexel undergrad founder of scholarship finding app Scholly, will be on ABC’s “Shark Tank” this season, according to the Season 6 trailer. We don’t know the exact date but we’ll update when we find out.

In the Season 6 trailer, below, investor and “shark” Daymond John tells Gray: “I resonate with this and I want to be a part of this,” after Gray and John both share that they were raised by single mothers.

Watch the trailer below, Gray is at 1:16.

Gray, dubbed the “Million Dollar Scholar” for winning $1.3 million in scholarships, has been one of the most media-savvy entrepreneurs in town: he’s been featured in countless national media outlets.

Here’s the last local entrepreneur who was on Shark Tank, “Wall Doctor” Jim Lewis of Chester County.
