Wizards’ Beal Surprises Four RBHS Students with HBCU Scholarships

Washington Wizards All-Star guard Bradley Beal on Thursday surprised four Ron Brown College Preparatory High School students who will be attending historically Black colleges and universities in the fall with $3,000 scholarships.

Each student also received a special gift box containing a Microsoft Surface Pro and keyboard, a Wizards and Washington Mystics Black Lives Matter T-shirt, a copy of the bestselling book “Between the World and Me,” a sweatshirt of each student’s respective university, inspirational quote pins and a Wizards fanny pack with branded items.

The gift boxes were dropped off at the homes of the students, all four of whom are D.C. residents.

The scholarships and items were funded by proceeds donated from Beal’s 2018-19 seasonlong NBA Cares Community Assist Award, from which the two-time All-Star was awarded $25,000 to donate to a charitable cause of his choice.

The recipients:

Jarden Crosson, 17

Christian Johnson, 18

Beal also accompanied 50 Young Kings from RBHS on a college tour of Howard University in February.
