Rachel Jeantel just keeps on winning!
After appearing on last night episode of CNN’s Piers’ Morgan tonight, Trayvon Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel has been offered a full scholarship to any Historically Black College or University by Mr. Tom Joyner himself. The radio personality announced the news morning on his radio show where he spoke to her live on the air.
Tuesday morning on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Joyner offered an olive branch to the embattled teen, offering her a possible full scholarship to any HBCU through the Tom Joyner Foundation.
Joyner proclaimed, “Hi Rachel, this is Tom Joyner, I love you, I really do love you”, Jeantel, shyly giggles before responding, “I know.”
But, Jeantel didn’t know how much she was loved because, Joyner was soon to dramatically change her life in a matter of minutes, saying, “If you want to graduate from high school, and go to an 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.”
Joyner did not only offer his assistance in college, he wants to help her get there, adding, “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.”
Jeantel, who we later learned was in shock from the offer, simply responded “thank you.” – Black America Web
I am so happy for Rachel! Not only is he going to help her go to college but he’s also going to help her get out of high school. You know there is a song by gospel single Isaac Carree titled “Blessin’ In Your Lesson“. Clearly Rachel has learned alot of lesson’s through this trial and has been blessed due to her lessons!
