Whistleblower unveils athlete’s 146-word essay

A picture of an essay from an athlete at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is circling the internet.

It’s full of grammatical errors and only 146-words long, but it earned the athlete an A-.

The paper was brought into the light by Mary Willingham, a North Carolina whistleblower, who spoke to ESPN about the fake courses for UNC athletes.

According to Slate, Willingham worked for UNC for a decade, tutoring and advising athletes before turning into a whistleblower.
