Kareem Abdul-JabbarSix-time NBA Champion and MVP, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, will deliver the keynote address at The Ferris Foundation for Excellence Benefit at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids on Friday, October 24. A college and professional basketball legend before he became a celebrated author, education ambassador and filmmaker, Abdul-Jabbar will speak at the Benefit about the role education has played in his life and how it can positively impact the lives of others.

Abdul-Jabbar hopes that his story will inspire others to strengthen access to hire education for young men and women. “I’m truly excited for this opportunity to participate in The Ferris Foundation for Excellence Benefit in Grand Rapids,” said Abdul-Jabbar, who earned his degree in history from UCLA. “I am a strong advocate for education and The Ferris Foundation’s commitment to access to a college education is a passion that is near and dear to me. I look forward to sharing this evening with a motivated group of men and women who understand that a strong foundation of education is essential in the pursuit of the American Dream.”

This year marks the 16th anniversary of the Benefit, which suppers The Ferris Foundation for Excellence Scholarship Program and Exceptional Merit Grand awards for faculty and staff. The event showcases ways that the university is impacting lives and strengthening Michigan’s future through education and outreach.

The black-tie-optional Benefit begins with cocktails and a keynote reception for sponsors with Abdul-Jabbar at 5:30 p.m. The program begins with dinner being served at 7:00 p.m. and runs until 8:30 p.m. when the keynote address will be delivered.
