I read that the grant is worth around $40 million. One student tore up the spreadsheet he had so diligently worked on to compute his payouts as soon as the announcement was made.

Very nice. Mr. Smith has a nice face, too.

Oprah just gave $500,000 to help fund a "Lights On" program at West Side H.S. in Newark, NJ. The school is open Friday nights and three evenings each week during the summer so that students have a safe place to go.

Some people do good things for reasons other than self-glorification.

Hmm, let's see: Who does that leave out? (No comments needed: We need a topic about good people only.)

How Wonderful. Mr. Smith must be a very caring compassionate person. Nice to hear such a heartwarming story. Those students are oh so fortunate.

"... Billionaire investor and philanthropist Robert F. Smith was giving the commencement speech at Morehouse College in Atlanta on Sunday, when he deviated from his prepared remarks to make an announcement: “My family is going to create a grant to eliminate your student loans!”...

It’s hard to estimate the cost of Smith’s gift to the 2019 graduates of the all-male historically black college, but it could be in the range of $5 million to $10 million, according to estimates. There are 400 graduates in the class, and Morehouse costs about $26,000 per year...

There was celebration at Morehouse as the grads and their parents processed the news...."
