Ellen DeGeneres has surprised two Summerville students with college scholarships, and announced a sizable gift for Ashley Ridge High School.

Ashley Ridge seniors Jaheim President and Darius Smith are featured on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday, March 12.

Smith and President both will be attending the College of Charleston, and will have all four years of their tuition paid for.

In fact, Smith will become the first person in his family to go to college. President, meanwhile, hadn't yet received his acceptance letter from the College of Charleston, and finds out from Ellen during the show.

Through a partnership with Cheerios, Ellen also will reward the teens each with $20,000, and award Ashley Ridge High School with $10,000.

The segment airs Tuesday at 4 p.m. on ABC News 4.
