High School Graduate Gives Out Her 40k Dollars Worth Of Scholarship To The Needy

A high school graduate in the United States identified as Verda Tetteh, has donated her exceptional performance scholarship fund worth $40,000 (N16,484,000) to any student who may need it more.

Tetteh, who immigrated to the U.S. with her family from Ghana, delivered a powerful address on resilience at the beginning of the Massachusetts school’s graduation ceremony. And just as she took her seat, the school’s principal announced her as one of the two beneficiaries of the scholarship.

While accepting the scholarship reward for her exceptional performance, Tetteh acknowledged how community college had greatly helped her mother, and she knew how far that money would go in funding an education there.

So she said at the ceremony that she wanted the administration to consider giving the scholarship to a community college student.

“I am so very grateful for this, but I also know that I am not the one who needs this the most,” Tetteh said.

“My principal actually you know, found me later that day and said, ‘I’m so very proud of you and that was a very selfless move.’

My mom said she cheered and gave me a standing ovation so I think it was very positive feedback and response from across the board,” Tetteh told USA Today.

Her video went viral and was shared on various media platforms. Verda has already gotten significant scholarships and financial aid to help her attend college, according to her family.
