The cast of Black Panther continue to create magic surprising a student with a full-ride scholarship courtesy of The Black Panther Scholarship. That reveal was made during The Hollywood Reporter‘s 2018 Women in Entertainment event. The event took place this past week at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.
Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira presented thew new scholarship created by Walt Disney Studios. It was presented to one girl from THR‘s Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program and is worth $250,000 to Loyola Marymount University. The program is in its ninth year and a partnership with Big Brother Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles.
The recipient, Kalis Coleman, plans on becoming a pediatric dermatologist and attends high school in Inglewood.
