In a statement from Knight, ‘I affirm my support to Jesse whose dreams of greater education as a foundational training will enable him the gift of his mind and skills for humanity’s future benefit.””
“Rainier Education Foundation, itself a recipient of $50,000 from the JZ Knight Foundation [last March], doled out $30,000 in new and renewing scholarships. Traci Carly explained the nonbiased process and how students receive money once, but can also apply for additional money for each successive year they stay in school, up to four years.”
