The rules of almost all scholarships is that the money goes directly to the school, not to the student. But not in the cases of her grandchildren. She personally sent a letter asking that the money be sent to her grandson's and grand nephews. The letters are also dated stamped from her Dallas office fax machine.
"I work pretty hard. We have a lot to do. And it really has not gotten all of my attention, I regret to say. It's a minor part of what we do on a daily basis," she said, adding that "I have not dwelled on trying to figure out a way to give my grandchildren $1,000 a year. ... I have a lot of things to do."Basically she is saying she is so busy that she doesn't pay attention to pesky little details like scholarship money, but the letters show that simply isn't the case.
