HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS GET THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME ON THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW

On Thursday, students from the high school senior class of Summit Academy Charter School in Brooklyn, NY appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where they received a surprise gift.  The students opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about what Summit Academy meant to them and how it would affect their future.  One student said, “Coming to Summit, it made my dreams and goals more realistic, coming from a single-parent house.”  Summit Academy is located in a neighborhood where only 4 percent of adults attended college.  The senior class will be the school’s first ever graduating class.

At the end of the show, the entire senior class was overcome by emotion when Ellen announced they would each receive a 4-year college scholarship.  The students cried and laughed, while they embraced each other and buried Ellen in a group hug.

The scholarships, made possible by Walmart, will provide the students with tuition for any state university in New York.  Ellen told the students: "Last time you were here, Walmart wanted to give you $25,000.  We've never done anything this big before, we've reached out to the people at Walmart, and they want to give each one of you a four-year scholarship."  Ellen revealed the entire amount is worth $1.6 million.

Ellen posted on Instagram about the amazing moment:

MILEY CYRUS SAYS VOTE FOR HILLARY OR “KISS MY ASHTANGA ASS”

Caroline Slusarczyk

There is no doubt that Miley Cyrus is with Hillary Clinton.  The 23-year old singer and actress visited George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, on Saturday to encourage students to vote for Hillary on Election Day, November 9th.  Cyrus was no understated Clinton supporter.  She tweeted and posted to Instagram about her GMU campaign trip, always including the hashtag #imwithher.  Miley proudly displayed Clinton campaign signs and donned a glittery red, white and blue ensemble, complete with a pink feathered headband.  And in true Miley fashion, almost every pic snapped of her at GMU featured her famous “tongue pose.”

While it’s clear Cyrus had a blast campaigning at George Mason University, she made sure to let students know she still meant business.  Cyrus knocked on multiple dorm doors and talked politics with the students.  Jake Zartman, 18, was one student who got up close and personal with Cyrus.  When Cyrus asked Zartman if he planned to vote, he responded that he already had for Hillary.  Cyrus cheered, “Yeah!” to which Zartman replied, “Obviously.”

Student Katherine Quigley, 19, told Cyrus she planned to vote for Hillary.  Cyrus approved, but quipped that if she was not shooting The Voice on Election Day, she would come back to make sure.

After her campaign trip to GMU, Cyrus summed up her political views for her Instagram followers in one very clear message:
