Reuben St. Clair is Trevor's middle school teacher. He assigns his class the following for extra credit: "Think of an idea for world change and put it into action." Little did he know that Trevor would actually change the world. Trevor pays it forward to Reuben by getting him engaged with Arlene McKinney, Trevor's mother.


Arlene McKinney is Trevor's mother. She was married to Ricky, Trevor's father, but he disappeared mysteriously. At first she disapproves of Trevor's project when he brings a homeless man into the house, but she later changes her mind when Trevor gets her engaged. When she realizes that Trevor changed the world, she is very proud and regretted her earlier disapproval.
