As the debate continues whether the current Team USA can beat Dream Team, one of the Captains of the Dream Team gave back to kids in a major way. Magic Johnson along with sponsor FedEx honored 33 scholars who earned the Magic Johnson Foundation’s Taylor Michaels Scholarship Saturday, July 28 at a special brunch at The Skirball Center.

In 2012, the Magic Johnson Foundation will fund 141 undergraduate scholars with a $500,000 financial commitment.  The Foundation additional support includes laptops for all freshman, alongside access to four years of mentoring, internships, and leadership training and career development each July at our annual summer convening. As you can see, The Magic Johnson Foundation is an active participant in solving the problem of abysmal college completion rates in low-income communities. They develop future leaders by supporting socioeconomically challenged high achievers through completion of their undergraduate degrees. By providing support and resources to help young women and men from under-served communities achieve both inside and outside the classroom, they have achieved a phenomenal success rate of college access and graduation.

The contributions of the Magic Johnson have made him one of the premier speakers for events as he has not only excelled on the basketball floor, but in the community. His motivational story and road to success continues to enlighten crowds of all ages and of all backgrounds.
