The G.O.A.T. debate has been a thing in the NBA over the last several years, but there’s no debate when it comes to college commencement speakers.
Billionaire Robert Smith – CEO of Vista Equity Partners – secured that honor during his commencement address to the 2019 Morehouse College graduating class and shocked everyone by announcing he was wiping out all student debt for the entire class. He didn’t literally drop the mic, but he didn’t have to.
Life advice is cool, but getting all your student debt zeroed out is the all-time boss move of boss moves. Good luck following this up with a commencement speech that dispenses home spun wisdom.
Wow! Billionaire Robert F. Smith surprises @Morehouse graduates by announcing this morning his family will eliminate the student debt of the entire class of 2019 with a grant. #PayItForward #HBCU pic.twitter.com/BPEDBdqryu
