She says she was excited to grow closer to God!
GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS5) — An incoming college freshman here in the Valley just got her scholarship taken away, following comments she made online about the death of George Floyd. The high school class of 2020 cheerleader from Ohio was supposed to be heading to the Phoenix area this fall to join Arizona Christian University’s Acrobatic and Tumbling team. But her scholarship has since been revoked after a controversial post on her Instagram page.
On Monday, that post, (along with another post from May, showing the student signing her offer letter to ACU and stating that she was excited to grow closer to God) was shared thousands of times. By Tuesday afternoon, the university, which is in Glendale and has about 750 students, rescinded its offer, stating that the university is a “racially diverse community” and they would be “praying for her.”
