Oct 25 - Liberian teen found & returned 50k, now offered scholarship at HBCU
 

 

October 25, 2021
Livingstone College will offer a full scholarship to a Liberian teen who found $50,000 and returned the money to its rightful owner.

Emmanuel Tuloe, 18, made international headlines earlier this month when news broke of his deeds.

According to media reports, Tuloe, who dropped out of school to support his family by driving a motorcycle taxi, was working one day when he found the money wrapped in plastic. He took the cash to an aunt’s house for safekeeping, hoping to locate the owner.

Later that day, a tearful businesswoman went on the radio to announce that she had lost the money and pleaded for its return. Tuloe heard the broadcast and contacted the radio station.


In a meeting with the country’s president, George Weah, who gave the teen one the nation’s highest awards. Luloe expressed a desire to complete his education.

That’s where Livingstone College comes in.

The historically Black college in Salisbury, NC has a longstanding history with Liberia through its founding denomination, the A.M.E. Zion Church, and through its collaboration with the Liberian Organization of the Piedmont (LOP), based in Winston-Salem.


Livingstone currently sponsors two Liberian students every four years through its partnership with the LOP. The college also supports A.M.E. Zion University in Monrovia, Liberia’s capital, as its international sister college.

When James Hunder, who chairs the LOP board, read about the teen’s honesty, he reached out to Livingstone President Jimmy Jinkens with the idea of offering the scholarship.

“It’s the perfect complement to the work Livingstone is already doing in Liberia,” Hunder said in a statement released by the university.

While the teen has been showered with widespread praise for his honesty, he also has been ridiculed, with some of his friends telling him he would die poor, according to media reports.

As a reward for his honesty, the owner of the money presented Tuloe with cash and materials worth about $1,500, according to those media reports. Among his gifts was a mattress, which Tuloe said he would give to his grandmother.

.

On Wednesday, Liberian Ambassador to the United States George S.W. Patten is scheduled to visit Livingstone to thank the school for the scholarship offer.

Jenkins, the Livingstone president, described Tuloe as “a beacon of hope for his generation and for his country.”

“Education is the surest vehicle for upward mobility in the world,” Jenkins said via the university. “This young man clearly understands that. He could have asked for anything from his country’s president, but what he wanted most was to finish his education…We would be proud to have him among our student population.”

Kid did the right thing and got rewarded pretty handsomely for it. Often times people do this and get fu*ked. I'm glad he was recognized internationally and is now able to attend university in the states.

Right. Normally you return 50k and they'll break you off $50 as a "reward"

Its a crime to not return money when you find it. Depending on where he found it he may have had a hard time getting away with it. The person even went on radio and with all the cameras around it could get tricky.

Butttttt even with that being said my schemin a*s would have tried to keep it. Make em come find me and ill just play dumb

50K in his country is the equivalent to $500

A US college education and a chance to work over here on a visa is worth more

According to the US Labor statistics and census bureau there’s way more degree holders striving than sitting home broke

Me and everyone I graduated with being among them

But of course you college bashers always wanna pinpoint the failures instead of the success stories despite never having attended college yourselves

Nothing wrong with what he did especially after he heard the broadcast. That deed was good seeds and energy that he will reap ten fold in the physical and spiritual realm.

Kid did the right thing.

Glad he didn't get a scholarship to Howard.

He might go back home once he gets a taste of the cafeteria food.

Bruh I’m legit confused that people don’t see this

A lot of Americans are completely clueless to the insurmountable amount of opportunities over here compared to 3rd world countries

This n*gga was driving taxis in Liberia making $10 a week. He basically hit the lotto here, his karma came back ten fold
