CLEVELAND, Ohio — Former Kent State University, member of Omega Psi Phi and Talk show host Steve Harvey announced that he will be covering the college tuition for eight incoming freshmen.
The scholarships are in honor of Devin Moore, a senior studying journalism from Cleveland who suddenly died playing basketball at the school’s recreation center. He was a member of Omega Psi Phi.
The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation also awarded Kent State’s Men Empowerment Network $10,000 in support. The program supports academic, personal and professional development for men of color at Kent State.
The total commitment from the foundation is $736,000, according to a university press release.
