American Genius Student Wins .7 Billion Naira Scholarships by Postgraduatengr: 10:53am On May 24, 2019
An American High school student and recipent of multiple college admissions has raked in 2 million dollars (approx. 720 million naira) worth of Scholarships.

Kiscada Hastings, a senior high student at International Leadership of Texas Keller-Saginaw High School in Fort Worth, TX has every reason to smile and is spoilt for choice on the college admission to accept. Kiscada Hastings applied to many colleges, and ended up being accepted to 17 of them.
His High school, International Leadership of Texas schools, encouraged students to apply to multiple schools. The cumulative of the successful admissions and scholarships are worth over 700 million naira.

Hastings has finally narrowed his choice and decided to accept the offer from the prestigious Yale University.

720 million naira is no joke. This is far more than the combined 2018 budget allocation for Adekunle Ajasin University and Ondo State University of Medical Science.

While you chew on that, congratulations, Kiscada Hastings.

Nigeria has a long way to go with education. Let's grant brilliant Students opportunities to excel and cooperate bodies should also sponsor bright Students rather than Bbn and other nonsense.
