The Grambling story has taken some different twists and turns, most of them being bad but now we get some good news. Rapper Wale will be donating $5,000 to Grambling. He originally committed to doing this when he performed at a November 7th homecoming concert. From The News Star:

In a news release by the university, Grambling student government president Jordan Harvery thanked Wale for his donation.

“Wale’s contribution speaks volumes about the character he posses and the support he has for HBCU’s and higher education,” Harvey said.

It’s nice to see the school get some help here and it is definitely needed. The donation didn’t come with a specific donation but since Wale wanted to help the football team, I hope they use the money to help the program.

Well done Wale.
