Rachel Jeantel, the friend of Trayvon Martin who had a rough time on the witness stand, has been through a lot. She also has caused controversy, since people were debating whether she was “ignant” and sloppy or a brilliant and misunderstood woman. But one thing that everyone can agree upon is that more education is always a beautiful thing.
Tom Joyner is a big supporter of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). He jumped into the fold by offering Jeantel a full ride to any HBCU she chooses.
Jeantel received the offer during a visit to the Tom Joyner Morning Show to discuss the verdict in the case of George Zimmerman.
Joyner said, “If you want to graduate from high school, and go to a HBCU, even if it’s not in Florida but especially Florida,like Florida Memorial, Edward Waters or FAMU, if you want to do that, I want to help you do that. I will help you get tutors to get you out of high school, tutors to help you pass the SAT and I will give you a full ride scholarship to any HBCU you’d like.”
We are sure Trayvon would be proud of his friend. Good job Tom Joyner!!
And for all you haters who made fun of her…kill yourself!
