“Talk show host, comedian and game show host Steve Harvey has committed to covering the college costs for eight incoming freshmen at his alma mater in Ohio,” reports the Associated Press.
The school is Kent State University.
Harvey announced the scholarships and feted the freshmen last week on his talk show.
In a press release about the gifts, Harvey said, “‘Whenever we can, we find a way to change the lives of young people through scholarship programs we have come up with.’ He added that the appearance on ‘Steve’ and his social media platform will ‘really blow up the fact that Kent State has made an effort to reach out to some forgotten young people to change their lives through education. I’m more than happy to be a part of it.’”
