REPORT: Talk show host donates mega bucks to scholarship fund for gay student
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres this week donated $25,000 to a scholarship fund for a gay valedictorian whose story went viral this summer after his parents forced him out of their home.
DeGeneres awarded the money to Seth Owen after the 18-year-old made an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday, according to NBC.
The article goes on to state the following:
The donation from DeGeneres comes after a GoFundMe campaign with the goal of helping Owen pay for college raised more than $140,000.
The funds have proven unnecessary, however, as Georgetown University offered Owen, who graduated from First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Fla., with a 4.16 grade-point average, a full-ride scholarship in early August.
