Why This 86-Year-Old Stranger Will Pay For 8 Students’ College Tuition
A generous stranger is about to make college much more affordable for eight high school students. Dale Stoner, an 86-year-old resident of Victorville, California, has offered to pay the teens’ complete college tuition. He surprised the first two, Ronaldo Lopez and Tonantcy Vargas, with the news at their school, University Prep, last month. Vargas broke down as she spoke to the local station about Stoner’s incredible gesture. “I was so shocked… I just started crying,” she said.
