After posting one simple video, this ‘Chewbacca Mom’ has received some pretty epic gifts. Check out what Southeastern University just gave her.
A simple cellphone video in the front seat of her car has brought Candace Payne, a.k.a. Chewbacca Mom, unexpected levels of fame and adoration.
Now a Polk County university is giving her family full tuition.
Southeastern University, a private Christian school in Lakeland, announced it’s paying for school for not only her two children but also her husband. The school filmed her reaction in a video of Payne touring the campus.
“How about I make this the best tour ever?” the school’s Dr. Kent Ingle tells Payne in the video. “Since you’ve been bringing joy and laughter and great inspiration to a lot of people around the world, here at Southeastern we want to do that for you. Our gift to you is to provide you and your family full, tuition-free scholarships.”
