Scott said in a statement, “Excellence abounds in every Black household, but too often opportunity does not – and Black students are left behind or counted out. So that’s what my family and I set out to change. We congratulate all 100 scholarship recipients this year. I know we will see great things from them – and we are already looking forward to increasing our work next year.”

Project manager and Scott’s sister, Jordan Webster, who graduated from Howard University this year and said her brother’s philanthropy  “means the world” to the students.
