Steve Harvey covers student tuition for eight lucky audience members

  /  07.02.2019

Steve Harvey has found himself inspired by the recent generosity of Robert F. Smith, who paid off the student loan debt of Morehouse College’s 2019 graduating class.

In a similar vein of philanthropy, the veteran television host surprised eight Kent State University students with the gift of a lifetime: covering costs pertaining to their education.

The entertainer, who attended Kent State himself, is giving back in the form of the Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation.

According to a press release, the scholarships are in memory of Devin Moore, a Kent State student and member of the Psi Gamma Chapter who died in 2017 while playing basketball at Kent State’s Student Recreation and Wellness Center. The eight students must maintain a 2.5 grade point average for the scholarships to renew each semester. If the students uphold the required GPA, the money will cover the total cost of attendance.

“This is a really, really cool moment for me,” Harvey said while surprising the students. “I want y’all to take advantage of this, man. Do something with yourself. Don’t blow this shot. There’s a lot of people out here that will not get a shot like this.”

He continued, “Let me tell you something, man. Millions of kids trying to go to college every year. I can’t tell you how many black kids in that area, up there, northeast Ohio, thousands. How? How? Just think about this for a moment. Out of the thousands of kids, y’all eight names got pulled out of the sky. How? How? Well, I’m going to tell you how: because that Almighty God – he got a plan for you. Because, that Almighty God – he sees something in you.”
