“Remember, God said, ‘I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’ I wish for each of you all the very best life has to offer, and always every day God’s love, God’s grace and God’s mercy.”

These were the words Wilberforce University President Elfred Anthony Pinkard spoke over the graduating classes of 2020 and 2021 at their commencement. Immediately following this proclamation of blessing, the students received news that caused them to erupt in cheers and celebration.

President Pinkard announced their student debt to the school would be forgiven in full.

“Because you have shown that you are capable of doing work under difficult circumstances, because you represent the best of your generation, we wish to give you a fresh start,” said Pinkard. “So therefore the Wilberforce University board of trustees has authorized me to forgive any debt.

“Your accounts have been cleared and you don’t owe Wilberforce anything. Congratulations,” Pinkard concluded.
