Help these EMHS students graduate

I am Season Bennett.  My husband and I own Headlines Barbershop in Charlotte, NC.  We were inspired by billionaire, Robert Smith, who paid off tuition for all of the 2019 Morehouse graduates.  We want to pay it forward in our community.  East Mecklenburg High School is right in our backyard.  We called the school to find out if there were any graduating seniors that wouldn't be able to graduate because they owe fees.  We were told that there are 14 seniors at East Mecklenburg High School who can't walk at graduation or receive their diploma because they owe money.  This would even prevent them from being able to go to college because they would be unable to receive their final transcript until their balances have been paid in full.  We want to raise the money to pay those balances off.  We only have one week.  We don't know these students and may never have a chance to meet them but we know that everyone should be entitled to the high school diploma that they earned.  We know that having a high school diploma is an important milestone in our society and can change the course of your life forever.   We will take your donations to the Finance Office at East Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte to resolve the debt.  Please help us!
