   Reminder:  he was an honorary member of that Graduating Class.    That makes the donation a really big BFD.     I hope it  does set a  standard for other billionaires who receive honorary degrees.

Seeing that on the news was a positive start for the day. I particularly liked his encouraging them to continue the process to help future grads.

GailL:  

This gift to the students is estimated to be about $ 40 million. The students have varing degrees of student loan debt - some with none to some with a whole lot.

 

Yea, for this rich person and others that give generously.

 

 

What a generous man wanting to give those grads a better start in life.

Billionaire & Family Promises To Payoff 2019 Grad Class Student Loans

Message 7 of 7

There were about 400 graduating - what a nice and unexpected gift.  This was after he had already pledged $ 1.5 million to the school.  The students and the staff where surprised by this generousity.

Lots of cheers after this event - and, needless to say, this just made this celebration much bigger.
