Terrence J Donates $100K To NC A&T
If there’s one thing you can say about Terrence J, it’s that he is a stand up guy.
The E! News correspondent donated a $100,000 endowment fund to his alma mater North Carolina A&T State University. The beautiful gesture took place Friday morning on campus as he celebrated “Terrence J Day.” The day celebrates the journalism and mass communication department. The day featured a mentor’s breakfast and a “Let’s Talk” networking session.
In addition to his donation, NBCUniversal has established a partnership with the university. The partnership will help develop initiatives to assist future graduates of HBCUs with careers in entertainment.
Terrence stated, “I am truly humbled to return to my alma mater and be in a position to give back to the same department and University that helped steer me on this incredibly rewarding career path. I’m inspired by the great work that NBCUniversal has contributed to N.C. A&T State and I am thankful to be able to work together with them on these important programs.”
We are absolutely squealing in our seats! It’s beautiful to see a celebrity give back so generously to the community. We’re sure that partnership with NBCUniversal and the $100K donation will change the lives of many. And it comes at a time when HBCUs are struggling to remain financially viable.
