Billionaire investor Robert Smith surprised graduating students at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, by using his speech at Sunday’s commencement ceremony to pledge to pay off the student loan debt of the entire class of 2019.

“This is my class, 2019, and my family is making a grant to eliminate their student loans,” Smith said during his speech, pointing towards hundreds of students dressed in black robes and mortarboards. “I know my class will make sure they pay this forward,” Smith added.
