Today's big news for Morehouse's #Classof2019

From Atlanta's WSB-TV a billionaire is offering a grant to eliminate the student loan debt for Morehouse College's class of 2019. Where was this man at 10 years ago? :o
Billionaire Robert F. Smith, who received an honorary doctorate at Morehouse College’s Sunday morning graduation exercises, had already announced a $1.5 million gift to the school.

But during his remarks in front of the nearly 400 graduating seniors, the billionaire technology investor and philanthropist surprised some by announcing that his family was providing a grant to eliminate the student debt of the entire Class of 2019.

“This is my class,” he said, “and I know my class will pay this forward.”
...
The gift has been estimated at $40 million.
I just have to see what this man looks like. Here's a tweet from Morehouse College!
