Florida Rapper Kodak Black has created a scholarship in honor of a victim of the 2018 Parkland shooting.

What We Know:

  • According to the Independent, the 23-year-old rapper attended a memorial held at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High on the third anniversary of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. Here, Black announced a 100,000 dollar scholarship in honor of former fan and student Meadow Pollack, who was one of the seventeen victims who lost their lives that day.
  • Kodak addressed those at the ceremony, telling the audience, “They [were] young and none of them deserved this. They wasn’t in this life to be killed. Meadow Pollack, she’s so beautiful, but the situation is bigger than Meadow Pollack. It’s about all of us. It’s about all the other kids. It’s about the whole school. It’s about all of Broward [County].”

“I’m going to help and I hope me setting up this scholarship will make a difference for something,” Black said. “I just want to make a positive impact for this community.”

  • The scholarship fund is available for students who want to study justice reform at the Nova Southeastern University Law School, where Pollack’s brother currently attends. Since having firearm offenses pardoned by former President Donald Trump in January, Kodak Black has been giving back in a number of charitable acts.
  • Earlier this month, Black also offered to cover the future educational costs of two deceased FBI officers’ children who were shot and killed in Sunrise, Florida, because he “knows what it’s like to lose loved ones and grow up in a single-parent home, and he wants to make sure the mourning families don’t ever have to worry about sending their kids to college.” 

The university board will determine the winner of the scholarship based on merit, grades, and an essay.
