One of Michigan's most notable celebrities stepped up and showed some love to high school graduates in Flint.
According to M Live, Eminem, through his Marshall Mathers Foundation, gifted each and every graduating senior with a pair of Beats By Dre headphones to celebrate their accomplishment. In a pre-recorded message to the students, Em said, "What's up Class of 2017? [...] I just want to say congratulations to the graduating seniors of Flint Northwestern, Flint Southwestern and Flint Accelerated Learning Academy. Congrats to all your guys' hard work, man. You earned this moment."
Student Betty Davis said she was personally floored by the gesture. "I thought he was just going to give his speech on the speaker and it just was going to be that. I greatly appreciate Eminem for giving out like he did. He didn't have to and the fact that he can see so much potential in Flint and Flint students, it just makes the gift so much more worth keeping."
According to Flint schools Superintendent Bilal Tawwab, it was Eminem and his foundation who initiated conversation about the donation.
