An Entire Third Grade Class Received Full-Ride College Scholarships and Where Have We Heard This Before?

Students and parents at an Arizona elementary school erupted in applause when they found out each third grader would receive a full-ride scholarship to the college of their choice in the future.

During an assembly last week at Bernard Black Elementary, school district officials announced that all 63 third graders would be provided a full-ride scholarship that would also cover tuition, books, and room and board. The generous donation was paid completely by the Rosztoczy Foundation and their College Promise program.

“The goal, through the generous officer of this family, is that finances will not be the barrier, that college is an option for every third grader right here at Bernard Black,” said Roosevelt School District Superintendent Quintin Boyce.

The announcement was a surprise to students and their parents, who were overwhelmed with the donation.

“I just couldn’t hold it back because it just means for sure my son is going to college. I don’t have to think about it. He’s going,” parent Brandon Gailliard told the local NBC News.

We’ve seen this play out before in one of the most cringeworthy television episodes of all time. Hopefully, this time the story has a different and much happier ending.
