This scholarship is named in honor of the late
Kedar Ishmael Boyce, a participating member of the original class of Mizzou
Black Men’s Initiative (MBMI), also known as The Roots, in 2009. On Feb. 24,
2017, Kedar lost his life in a motorcycle accident. Kedar was more than just a
member, he was known as a Brother who was truly committed to the mission and
goals of MBMI. Kedar, New Jersey native, was not able to successfully continue
his education at the University of Missouri due to financial restraints. During
his time with MBMI, he always expressed the importance of education and
activism. To honor his legacy, The Roots developed this memorial scholarship to
aid young MBMI brothers as they transition into their sophomore year who
exemplify academic achievement, passion for education, good character, and
brotherhood.Learn more about Mizzou Black Men's Initiative or Inclusion, Diversity, & Equity at the University of Missouri.
