Will Ferrell and the Today Show gave an Ithaca College student the surprise of a lifetime on national TV. He awarded Speech pathology major Samantha Watts a $100,000 scholarship on the Today show. Watts was one of over 2,000 submissions for a contest, asking viewers to submit someone who they thought deserved money for a college education. Watts told TODAY that she has to go to grad school in order to practice speech pathology, but her father was undergoing cancer treatment last year, making money tight. Ferrell presented her with a large check, which you can watch happen on our Facebook page.
