Nick Cannon is helping pay off college debt for seven HBCU students.
The movie star and comedian is partnering with Thurgood Marshall College Fund and United Negro College. HBCU students were invited to The Nick Cannon Show where they talked about their experiences as college students and the things they had to overcome to be where they are now.
Little did they know that Cannon had something up his sleeve. “Once you earn your college degree, we will eliminate your personal student debt, every penny,” Cannon told the group.
Cannon hopes this will inspire more HBCU students while trying to emphasize the economic hurdles that exist for many black and brown students. Once all seven students graduate, their college debt will be paid.
“I am very proud to be a part of an incredible legacy of HBCU graduates,” shared Nick Cannon.
