When Bernard Smith graduated from Johnson C.
University in Charlotte, NC, in 2017, he had already made more than $30,000 in donations to the school by the time he was 27 years old, the Charlotte Post reports.
According to NBC Charlotte, Smith went on to work at Microsoft and is now a cloud solution architect in cybersecurity.
He's also been inducted into the school's Myers Society and started the Next Step Initiative, which aims to create STEM curriculums for middle and high schoolers and support initiatives for underfunded schools.
"I give back by leading and participating in committees to help alumni give back, I lead by lending a helping hand to volunteer to serve the community with students and other alumni by giving my time," Smith says.
