It’s no surprise that Ellen has a big heart. Just last month she invited two educators from Brooklyn’s Summit Academy Charter School. A school located in one of Brooklyn’s more poverty-stricken neighborhoods. While on the show, she gave both educator’s a $25K check for the charter school and invited them to bring their students the following month.
Fast track to this month the entire senior class of 2017 joined the educators on Ellen DeGeneres’ show where they were given one of the biggest gifts yet. A giveaway that’s never been done before on the show and one to truly pay off in the long run. DeGeneres gave each student a secured full four-year scholarship to any New York University. And if you’ve never seen that many students overwhelmed with joy and tears, watch this. Might want to also grab your tissues while you’re at it.
