Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend 'desperately' wants to see her

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon is hopeful that he'll be able to visit her in the hospital soon.

In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, Gordon's attorney, Randall M. Kessler, said he isn't visiting her in the hospital to avoid confrontation with her family.

The statement said:

"Nick has been trying, privately, to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively. He has respected the family's wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted."

(WXIA) -- More than 100 public schools in three metro Atlanta counties will benefit from Chevron's Fuel Your School program.

Through the campaign, Chevron contributes $1 from every gasoline purchase of eight gallons or more to participating schools. Fuel Your School generated $391,146 for 131 schools in Clayton, DeKalb and Fulton counties.

Many of the projects that are granted funds from the program are part of STEM curriculums. For example, students at Grady High School in Atlanta received a data-gathering device to use in their physics courses.

Chevron said nearly 40,000 students are impacted by the money generated through Fuel Your School.
