Celebrity Trio Supports Scholarships
Kamal Gray, Jahri Evans and Michael Harris gave Neumann $25,000 for scholarships on October 18. The funds will be used to support current Neumann students who need financial assistance to continue their pursuit of a degree.
Gray is the keyboard player for The Roots, a Grammy Award-winning hip-hop group and house band for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Michael Harris is president and CEO of Best Sports Consultants, and Jahri Evans is a former NFL player and Super Bowl winner with the New Orleans Saints.
The three selected Neumann University to receive their gift because it is one of five American colleges participating in the launch of SponsoredScholar, a program that empowers college students to initiate personalized fundraising campaigns to help pay for tuition.
