Texas Southern Offers George Floyd’s Daughter a Full Scholarship


Texas Southern University has offered George Floyd’s daughter Gianna a full scholarship if she chooses to attend the university.  Her father George was a citizen of the Third Ward and even graduated from Jack Yates High School which is close by the university. Gerald Smith, the chairman of the TSU Foundation said, “The TSU Foundation is proud to provide this privately-funded scholarship to Ms. Floyd.”  Gianna’s father George died May 18 in Minneapolis after a video shows him gasping for air as an officer holds his knee on his neck. His death has sparked protests across the world for racial justice.
