All the stress of college should wash away on graduation day, but that’s not always the case for those who are getting ready to pay off student loans.

That’s why it was so life-changing when an anonymous donor decided to help out the 2022 graduating class of Wiley College in Marshall, Texas. In a news release, it was announced that this generous person was covering a little over $300,000 in student loan debt! But before that news release went out to the public, the students themselves found out at the perfect time – during their graduation ceremony!

“You do not owe the college a penny,” Herman J. Felton, Wiley College president announced. “If you have a balance, you had a balance. You no longer have a balance.”

Watch the moment these hardworking students received this monumental news below, and don’t forget to share with a friend.
