George Floyd's Daughter Gianna Has Been Given A Full Ride To Texas Southern University

Gianna Floyd sadly buried her dad, George Floyd, this week, after he was senselessly murdered over the Memorial Day holiday in Minneapolis.

Now, Texas Southern University is providing Gianna with a full ride scholarship to their university when she reaches age.

“Mr. Floyd was a lifelong citizen of the Third Ward and a revered graduate of Jack Yates High School. The Board, in conjunction with the TSU Foundation Board, has approved a fund to provide a full scholarship for Floyd’s beloved daughter, Gianna,” TSU shared in a post on Facebook.

The statement added, “TSU’s executive and academic staff will prepare a place for Miss Floyd if she wishes to attend the University.”

While many have applauded the school for the gesture, some have also spoken out and said the university should also provide scholarships for Mr. Floyd’s four other children as well.

Gianna, along with her mom Roxie, gave an interview following George‘s death.
