“Almighty God, he got a plan for you,” Entertainer Steve Harvey told the eight Kent State University students whose full college scholarships he has agreed to finance.

The entertainer, who attended Kent State, will “cover the total cost of attendance” for eight incoming freshmen, the Ohio school announced in a statement released last Wednesday, June 25:

The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation is collaborating with Kent State to provide scholarships that will cover the total cost of attendance. All of the students must maintain a 2.5 grade point average for the scholarships to renew each semester.

The scholarships are in memory of Devin Moore, a Kent State student and member of the Psi Gamma Chapter who died in 2017 while playing basketball at Kent State's Student Recreation and Wellness Center.

On Thursday, June 26, the eight scholarship recipients appeared on Harvey’s television show, “Steve,” where he impressed on them how blessed they are to have been chosen out of the “millions of kids trying to go to college.”

“Don’t blow this shot,” because “Almighty God – he got a plan for you,” Harvey urged them:

“This is a really, really cool moment for me. I want y’all to take advantage of this, man. Do something with yourself. Don’t blow this shot.

“There’s a lot of people out here that will not get a shot like this. Let me tell you something, man. Millions of kids trying to go to college every year. I can’t tell you how many black kids in that area, up there, northeast Ohio, thousands.

“How? How? Just think about this for a moment. Out of the thousands of kids, “y’all eight names got pulled out of the sky. How? How?

“Well, I’m going to tell you how: because that Almighty God – he got a plan for you.

“Because, that Almighty God – he sees something in you.”
