George Floyd’s 6-Year-Old Daughter Receives Full Scholarship To Texas Southern University

Gianna Floyd, the 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd, has been given a full-ride scholarship to Texas Southern University. The school announced on Tuesday.

The school released a press release stating,  they had “approved a fund to provide a full scholarship for Floyd’s beloved daughter, Gianna … if she wishes to attend the University.”

The board mentioned that the scholarship was a way for them to “honor the memory of George Floyd on the day that he is laid to eternal rest.”

“This Board is committed to education and understands that a college degree is one of many powerful steps toward a productive and successful life,” Albert H. Myres, chair of the Board of Regents, said in a statement. “We know that this gesture cannot take the place of her dad’s loving presence, but we hope that it will contribute to easing her journey through life.”

Last week a video surfaced the internet of Gianna, saying that her daddy “changed the world.” She was right.
