"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."
The Kevin Shaw Jr. Foundation (KSJF) was created by the late Kevin Shaw Sr. in September 2015 in remembrance of his late son Kevin Shaw Jr. The mission of the Foundation is to award scholarships to minority high school students entering their first year in college.
The KSJF chose this mission because of the belief of its founder that education is the key to success. Kevin Sr. passed his belief to his son who received an academic scholarship for the Honor’s program at Rice High School and a four-year academic scholarship to Fairfield University where he graduated with his Bachelor of Science Degree with a double major in Finance and Accounting. In 2013, with hard work and endurance Kevin Jr. realized his dream of receiving an MBA from George Washington University was an achievable goal.
Thanks to our generous donors, 16 scholarships have been awarded by the KSJF, to support aspiring students like Kevin, our community’s future leaders.
