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:

Country music’s husband-wife duo Tim McGraw and Faith Hill just made the holidays extra bright for some unsuspecting Walmart shoppers.  Earlier this week, the couple paid off $5,000 worth of pending layaway purchases for the customers of Walmart in Baker County, Florida.  McGraw’s mother, Betty Trimble, showed up in person to the Walmart to act as the Secret Santa distributing the “gifts.”  Each gift came with the fully paid receipt of the layaway item, and a card signed, “Merry Christmas from Tim McGraw & Faith Hill.”

Several of the lucky shoppers who went home with a Christmas present shared their stories to social media, thanking Trimble, Hill and McGraw.  Jessica Lumpkin, a Baker County resident, wrote on Facebook, “I didn’t have anything on layaway, was just picking up a package and she gave me this. I’ve never had this happen to me. I’m glad I call Baker County my home.”
