This is your feel good story of the day. Ellen DeGeneres called two Summerville teens from her studio audience, Jaheim and Darius. Both are seniors at Ashley Ridge High School in South Carolina. But both had no idea what they were about to find out!
The Teens want to be teachers and discussed losing their father’s at a young age, that teachers played a huge role in their lives. Darius has been accepted to College of Charleston and said he would be the first person in his family to go to college. Jaheim was waiting to find out if he was accepted to the same school. Either boy had no idea what was about to happen.
Check it out:
Well, Ellen had his acceptance letter and announced it on air that he was going to College of Charleston. But it didn’t end there! Jaheim is the first person in his family going to college and NOT on a sports scholarship. In fact both men will have their tuition covered for all four years of college! Ya see, both received checks for $20,000 from Cheerios and their high school received a check for $10,000. It was all part of Ellen’s “Acts of Good” campaign!
What is a recent “act of good” you were either on the receiving end of or did for someone else?
