P.DIDDY’S SON; JUSTIN COMBS RECEIVES FULL SCHOLARSHIP TO UCLA!

This has been the talk of the day all day on the radio, on the job and err-where else! Big Congrats to Justin; P.Diddy’s son who received a full paid scholarship to UCLA based on academics! Dude must be hella smart, but this is the argument that everyone is debating about: Does he need the scholarship money for school? Diddy is worth over $450 Millis so they should give that $$$ to someone else. Or should they? Since this is an academic scholarship which means Justin “earned” this. He studied and worked hard to receive this scholarship, so I say congrats to him.

Justin, who graduated with a 3.7 GPA from a top private school and won several football awards and made the prestigious All Star/All American team this year, tweeted last night:

Regardless what the circumstances are, I put that work in!!!! PERIOD. Regardless of what you do in life every1 is gonna have their own opinion. Stay focused, keep that tunnel vision & never 4get why u started.

He received co-signs from his extremely supportive mom Misa Hylton, of course.

My Son is his own man. He will earn his own way through life. I’m so proud of my baby ♥ it starts now! He is exactly the young man I raised him to be ☺ #independent #hardworking #intelligent

And we have to agree.  There is a huge difference between need-based scholarships and merit-based scholarships.  What kind of society would we be when we begin to tell any student or child you do not deserve to EARN merit simply because of what your parents have?  Shouldn’t we congratulate all students and kids who work extremely hard in sports, the classroom, etc?
