Talk about “hypermasculinity.” LoL
Surely you’ve heard already about philanthropist Robert Smith’s surprise commencement speech that turned out to be much greater than the usual snooze fest when Smith put his money where his mouth is.
In addition to the 1.5 million dollars he gave to the school, the billionaire tech investor pledged to pay off the entire class of 2019’s student loan debt. So not only were these men walking out having graduated, they’re also walking out into the world school loan debt-free.
Now, of course something like such set a new precedent for trite tradition of commencement ceremonies as, making a surprise announcement to play off an entire class’ student loan debt (379 men) is quite the tough act to follow.
Well, talk show queen Oprah had just that [to do] when she was scheduled to speak at the commencement ceremony for Colorado College.
Worth billions herself (and known for being a big-ticket giver herself) obviously the ‘Internets’ awaited to see what, if anything she had to offer to this class of 2019—just a day after Robert Smith changed the game.
Well. Lady O all these Internet wags in check by letting the record state that she’s been there, done that already as, she’s paid over 13 million in scholarships and have put over 400 men through that same schoolhouse thank ya much.
Worth its weight in gold, if a picture worth a one-thousand, this guy here sure as heavens walked off with his as, he seems to be pretty ecstatic. LoL:
For the record (over the weekend, nice and quietly), Oprah slid a cool 500k to a school in Newark, New Jersey-principled by Akbar Cook.
