On his radio program Tuesday, radio host Tom Joyner announced that he would fully pay for Rachel Jeantel to attend a historically black college or university of her choice.
Jeantel is the friend of Trayvon Martin who was the last person to speak to him before his February 2012 death and the star witness in the trial against George Zimmerman.
Joyner told Jeantel on his radio program early Tuesday, if you want to graduate from high school, and go to an HBCU if you want to do that, I want to help you do that.
Jeantel is currently 19 years old and is about to enter her senior year of high school in Miami. Shes scheduled to graduate next spring, at the age of 20.
Joyner continued, 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 youd like.
Jeantel thanked Joyner and said she was shocked by the offer.
She also said that shed like to pursue a career in law enforcement.
Reached for comment, the president of the National Association For Equal Opportunity in Education the non-profit umbrella organization for Americas HBCUs released a statement to the Daily Caller, applauding the news.
This generous offer typifies Dr. Tom Joyner, Lezli Baskerville told TheDC.
An HBCU would be an ideal environment in which Ms. Jeantel could realize her educational aspirations because of their academic excellence and signature protective, supportive, nurturing environments, Baskerville continued.
Baskerville said that Jeantel has been pilloried and ridiculed in the national media.
At an HBCU, Baskerville explained, Ms. Jeantel will be able to realize her educational aspirations in a welcoming and supportive environment.

??? with an IQ of 50???LOL
After about 12 years of remedial education, she’ll be ready to major in ebonics and minor in Obama-nomics.
Seriously, what “public education” has done to her should be seen as child abuse and the people behind it (the education systems) should be imprisoned.
People might make fun of her, but she is a tragic figure and a product of her culture and environment. She, and all those like her, have been “made.”
“Somehow I don’t see this girl applying herself to her studies. “
She only needs an IQ of 50 to pass African American studies.
IMO she goaded Travon Martin in to attacking Zimmerman because she found it amusing.
No, she doesn’t have to learn to read and write. She just has to show up and get her ticket punched.
She just found her ride for life.
College?? How about grammar school....
Poor George...the world has gone upside down.
It’s maddening. George was a good student but asked not to come back to his school after indicted by Angela political Whorey.
This illiterate lying hood rat gets sympathy and full scholarship for helping railroad an innocent man.
Some of the comments on the Facebook post of this article were comical. One asked if her dorm will have blue toof..
Because the world can never have too many African American studies majors.
Yeah he knows he won’t have to spend that money.
I do not believe there is a college in this country that would accept her. Unless maybe they needed a football player with a major in black studies.
Or Elementary School
Where she will drop out after 23 minutes on Day One.
Someday she’ll be a professor of Afro-Womyn’s Studies at some Ivy League university
4th graders have mastered cursive writing skills.....
But didn’t she say she never reads or watches the news.
She comes across as exactly, precisely the kind of person we DO NOT need in any position with any authority over any other human being.
