Oprah Winfrey names the girls to attend her free school

Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies, Life & Style, Media

You know, I want to believe that Oprah is just all hype, but she's making it really impossible to. Ecorazzi (a blog on the latest in green gossip -- how cool is that?) is reporting that Oprah has named the first 73 girls to attend a school in South Africa that she helped build. According to the BBC, "it will eventually teach 450 girls who show academic talent and leadership but whose families cannot fund schooling. The school aims to employ advanced education techniques, and communication technology that will allow Winfrey to teach from Chicago."

Now THAT's a great story. Congratulations to the girls, and congratulations to Oprah. I love news of people making the world a better place.
