Leonard Fournette Helps LSU Student In Need, Pays For Her Tuition
Jacksonville Jaguars running back and former LSU Tiger Leonard Fournette is giving back to his University.
He's not writing a check to the athletic department, but is helping a 5th year senior write her tuition check.
Jhané Garner shared on twitter her GoFundMe campaign to help her pay for her senior year, as she no longer qualifies for Tops.
She already works two jobs, and is still coming up short on tuition.
Fournette, who also has over 395,000 twitter followers, shared her tweet, and said he'd pay for her tuition.
Jacque Doucet of WAFB in Baton Rouge spoke with Garner about the gesture.
It's good to see former LSU running backs giving back.
Last week, Derrius Guice used his love of video games and turned into a fundraiser on his birthday, raising $21,000 for cancer research. Guice also retweeted Garner's request for help and donated $1,000 to her GoFundMe Campaign prior to Fournette paying for the rest.
