HOLLYWOOD (CCN) — Flint native Terry Crews has joined the "Year of Giving Campaign" by the web site known as Bold.org. The former NFL player and Hollywood actor who now helps host the hit TV show America's Got Talent has announced that he is creating a $20,000 gift for the web site's scholarship platform committed to fighting student debt through philanthropy with its "Year of Giving Campaign."
The "Terry Crews Creative Courage" scholarship will be awarded in an effort to continue to lift up amazing creatives by providing an incredible opportunity for a struggling artist chasing his or her dreams. One student will receive $20,000 to use toward their artistic development and education.
Scholarships have always been a big part of the Flint Southwestern High School graduate's story. Before he earned the football scholarship that eventually launched his professional football career in the NFL, Crews won an art scholarship. He worked hard to pursue his career and get extra funding for school.
Bold.org reveals that the scholarship provided by Crews is available to anyone pursuing an education as a musician, artist, animator, architect or another art-related career or hobby.
