Commencement Speaker Pays Off Student's Debt


HBCU graduates of Morehouse University just got incredibly lucky this year.

The commencement speaker for this year's graduating ceremony, billionaire Robert F. Smith, has announced he would be clearing the student debts of the entire class of 2019.

The students were incredibly grateful and some were even brought to tears.

Smith also received his honorary doctorate from Morehouse that same morning.

The amount of student loans is estimated at $40 million dollars, which is a very powerful way to give back to the community.

Check out his speech below and congratulations to the 2019 graduates!
