About the George Floyd Scholarship
In 2020, Mr. Anthony Knotts decided to develop a scholarship in honor of George Floyd and his friend Angelo Robinson. These African-American men both experienced police brutality that resulted in them using the statement, “I Can’t Breathe.” Mr. Knotts set in his heart to change that narrative and make this scholarship his way of peacefully protesting. He wants African American females and males to know they can breathe in the midst of the society we live in. Every August & January, a minimum of 5 students will be selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship in George Floyd’s honor.
