The 2020 and 2021 graduating class of Wilberforce University received an amazing unexpected blessing.

During their graduation on May 29, the university’s president, Dr. Elfred Anthony Pinkard, announced the HBCU will wipe away all of the debt for the graduating class of 2020 and 2021. 

Dr. Pinkard said:

And finally, members of the class of 2020 and 2021…

Because we are in awe of your strengths and perseverance…

Because you have made your family and yourselves proud…

Because you have shown that you are capable of doing work under difficult circumstances…

Because you have represented the best of your generation, we wish to give you a fresh start. 

Therefore the Wilberforce University Board of Trustees has authorized me to forgive any debt.

Your accounts have been cleared and you don’t owe Wilberforce anything!

Watch the amazing moment below.

This is amazing! 

Congratulations graduates!
