Description

Grammy-award winning rapper and hip-hop artist Nelly came to the Lindenwood University campus in September, 2014, to assist in presenting two scholarships to St. Louis-area students. The scholarships went to Savoy Smith from McCluer South-Berkeley and Kalen-Mikal Grant from Riverview Gardens High School. Grant is majoring in marketing and Smith is majoring in psychology. The annual Black and White Ball scholarship ceremony is a sponsored by Lindenwood’s Black Student Union, Plaza Motors, and Nelly. In 2008, Lindenwood partnered with Nelly to award two, four-year, full-tuition scholarships to first-year students who lived in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Lindenwood University’s Black Student Union is instrumental in administration of the scholarship applications, planning and execution of the award ceremony, and participation in the Black and White Ball itself, said Cathy Hart, faculty advisor for the group.
