Howard University has been in quite the negative light as of late due to the embezzlement of over $1 million dollars. The university has fired 6 staff members as of yesterday but the one that stood out was the form student employee Tyrone Hankerson Jr. He allegedly scammed $429,000 from Howard’s financial aid and has been the center of this entire controversy.
Hankerson Jr. issued a statement to ABC News saying that “I have done nothing illegal or wrong. When the truth comes out, it will be confirmed that I followed all rules and protocol with the approval of the then financial aid officers in any grants, scholarships or awards given to me as a student who attended class all year round and traveled abroad.”
The medium article that was initially published about the issue has been deleted.
Hankerson Jr. has deactivated all of his social media accounts, but that doesn’t mean the internet doesn’t still have receipts of him living his best life with expensive clothes, designer bags, and even a personal videographer to chronicle the best parts of his life.
