Morehouse College seniors got a surprise Sunday when billionaire investor Robert F. Smith announced during his commencement speech that he would give a gift to the graduating class.
Robert Frederick Smith is an American businessman, investor, and philanthropist. A former chemical engineer and investment banker, he is the founder, chairman, and CEO of private equity firm Vista Equity Partners. In 2018, Smith was ranked by Forbes as the 163rd richest person in America.
“On behalf of the eight generations of my family who have been in this country, we’re going to put a little fuel in your bus,” he told the newly minted graduates at the private, all-male, liberal arts, historically black college in Atlanta.
“Let’s make sure every class has the same opportunity going forward. We are enough to ensure we have all the opportunities of the American dream.”He said.
Smith’s amazing gift was met with a standing ovation from the students who turned to each other in disbelief, And then they chanted “MVP!”
He said after the ceremony: “Where you live shouldn’t determine whether you get educated. Where you go to school shouldn’t determine whether you get textbooks.
“The opportunity you access should be determined by the fierceness of your intellect, the courage in your creativity and the grit that allows you to overcome expectations that weren’t set high enough.”
Jonathan Epps, 22, one of the graduates, described it as a “tremendous blessing.”
The college president David Thomas said, “Smith’s gesture is a liberation gift.”
