Rachel Jeantel, the witness that was the last one to speak to Trayvon Martin, was offered a wonder surprise by the 'Hardest working Man in Radio' Mr. Tom Joyner.

Tom Joyner offered Jeantel help with acquiring her GED as well as preparatory assistance with the SAT.  His offer didn't stop there.  He then proceeded to offer her a full scholarship to any HBCU she wishes to attend.  (((Here's hoping she choses FAMU.  I know.  I'm biased.)))

Here's what he said to her:

“Here’s my offer to you, if you want to graduate from high school and go to an HBCU, even if it’s not in Florida but especially Florida, like Florida Memorial, Edward Waters, Bethune Cookman or FAMU, if you want to do that, I want to help you do that,” Joyner told Jeantel.

“I will help you get tutors to get you out of high school, tutors to help you pass the SAT and I will give you a full ride scholarship to any HBCU you’d like,” he said.

Finally something has made me smile.
