The Kennard Charles Brown Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Kennard C. Brown who, in August 2022, died from cardiovascular complications. Kennard was a beloved son, brother, and uncle who believed in the importance of education, hardwork, giving back to his community, and building generational wealth for future generations to succeed. Kennard studied electrical engineering at Morgan State University, a Historically Black College/University located in Baltimore, Maryland.
The mission of the Kennard C. Brown Memorial Scholarship is to empower future generations to reach their potential through higher education. This fund aims to assist in preventing, “a dream deferred” by supporting disadvantaged youth through college. This fund would annually provide a $500 scholarship to one or more African-American male undergraduate student(s) studying at an HBCU (Historically Black College University).
