As much as Charles Barkley is vilified for all his degenerate activities, there is a good side that is hardly talked about. Lost in the mix are the numerous million dollar donations that Barkley has bestowed upon his former schools. And now comes word of Sir Charles offering to pay for Christian Abate’s Temple education.
“During a visit to Saloon last summer, Charles Barkley asked Abate how he was enjoying teaching, and was disappointed to learn that Abate had still not returned to Temple because of problems securing financial aid. Abate, 28, of South Philly, started at Temple in 1997, months after graduating from St. John Neumann High. Sir Charles told Abate he would like to help him with his tuition, and Abate wasn’t sure how to respond. Barkley didn’t give him much time, telling Abate that he had the length of Barkley’s meal to decide. Abate wisely accepted.”
Good for Chuck, and good for Abate.
