Rick Ross Is Using Wingstop to Send Kids to School

The Boss is helping launch a new scholarship program.

Published May 17, 2016

Rick Ross was recently happy to announce that he's taking his business “to the next level.”

The level the rapper-turned-entrepreneur is referring to is a charitable one and he will be giving back to the community in an important way. 

Ross has teamed up with the Wingstop Foundation to help launch a scholarship program available to young people that live in urban areas and is using the scholarship to help send students back to school.

“To me, a company as huge as Wingstop, we’ve seen so much success doing what we’re doing, let’s take it to the next level,” Rozay said, reflecting on the scholarship. 

“Let’s make ourselves that much more a part of the community,” the Boss continued. “We see the dropout rates. We know what’s going on. So what’s the biggest thing that we could do? Wingstop as a company came together and put together an urban scholarship that’s for the underprivileged, that’s educationally based. That’s me talking to my audience. We need to hear this, and we need to bring all these ideas and concepts to the table and start as soon as possible.”

Ross owns several Wingstop franchises throughout the U.S., and is teaming up with the company once more to help others pursue a higher education. 

Through the collaboration between Ross and the foundation, grants will also be awarded for mentoring efforts and education groups working to help lessen the school dropout rate.

The Wingstop Foundation is slated to officially launch later this year.
