During a segment of “Ellen’s Greatest Night of Giveaways,” former first lady, Michelle Obama surprises Randle Highlands Elementary School.
Michelle Obama makes this Christmas an unforgettable one by surprising teachers and students of an elementary school in Washington, DC., with a gift of $100,000, new computers and a new basketball court.
According to People Magazine, TV host, Ellen DeGeneres sent a camera crew to tour the school. Randle Highlands principal, Kristie Edwards, thought it was sent to the school for a life-in-the-day docu-series. But that was not the case.
As the tour went on, they made a stop at the computer lab where they were met by a special guest.
A girl in the back screamed Obama, but the principal was still giving the tour. When she looked up, she saw Michelle Obama right in front of her.
“Now I bet you guys are wondering what I am doing here, well you guys know Ellen DeGeneres?” Obama said. “what you don’t know is that I am here because it is ‘Ellen’s Night of Giveaways.”
She went ahead to say that she did not see any basketball court and the computers looked really outdated, so that was about to change.
New computers were given to the school. To top it all up, she gave Apple iPads to every single student. Tears were shed as the eye pads were handed out to the students. This was truly an unforgettable Christmas for the teachers and students of Randle Highland Elementary School.
