Verda Tetteh made an unexpected request during her graduation ceremony, saying that she wasn’t the one who needed the scholarship the most and instead requesting that the $40,000 she had received go to a community college student.

She expressed her gratitude for it by saying, “I am extremely appreciative, but I also know that I am not the one who needs this the most. Knowing how beneficial it was for my mother to attend community college, I would be eternally grateful if the administration would think about awarding the general excellence scholarship to a student attending a community college.

This smart lady, Verda Tetteh received a GPA of 4.9 for her graduation, which made her eligible for additional scholarships.

Verda Tetteh intends to study chemistry at Harvard University with a focus on pre-medicine.
