CLARK ATLANTA UNIVERSITY STUDENTS GET THEIR TUITION CHEFFED
Pinky Cole, The Slutty Vegan founder, contributed to paying the balances of 30 Clark Atlanta University seniors so they could have the opportunity to graduate.
Pinky, who’s a Clark Atlanta alumni, made an enormous donation to help one student stay in school after spotting the student’s Go Fund Me page. Pinky and Stacey Lee, another restaurant owner who graduated from Clark, then came together to bless some more students at Clark Atlanta University.
“I’ve been in that situation trying to figure out how you’re gonna pay for school and if it weren’t for me becoming Miss Clark Atlanta University, I might not have been able to graduate,” Pinky said.
Pinky proclaimed, “It just felt good. It felt rewarding, That’s the biggest reward and success. it’s not the fact that we paid the money but they’re reactions and how they felt.”
The students overwhelmed the women with hugs for their generosity and life-changing contributions.
Earlier in the week, Pinky saw Khalil Perry’s Go Fund Me account. Khalil is a junior studying mass communications at Clark Atlanta.
Perry needed help paying about $7,000 to $8,000 to Clark Atlanta so that he could stay in school.
Perry told 11Alive’s Nick Sturdivant that without the help, he would have had to return to his home state of Texas.
