Keyshawn Morgan, who just started his senior year in high school in Orlando, Fla., received two incredible surprises this week.
First, the local Boys & Girls Club surprised him and some friends with VIP tickets to see Beyoncé and Jay-Z in concert on Wednesday night. Then, right before the headliners took the stage, Morgan’s mind was completely blown when Beyoncé and Jay-Z gave the 17-year-old $100,000 for college.
Morgan is one of 11 high school students around the country who will be receiving $100,000 scholarships from Jay-Z and Beyoncé. The power couple recently announced that their charities — the BeyGOOD Initiative and the Shawn Carter Foundation — would award more than $1 million in college scholarships during their current OTRll Tour.
“It’s like a big weight lifted off my shoulders,” Morgan said of the scholarship to the Orlando Sentinel the day after the concert. “Not just my shoulders but my mom’s shoulders and my dad’s.”
