Magic Johnson, along with sponsor FedEx, honored 33 scholars who earned the Magic Johnson Foundation's Taylor Michaels Scholarship this week at a special brunch at The Skirball Center.

The morning event capped the Foundation’s annual five day Taylor Michaels Scholarship Program (TMSP) Conference, which offered new and past scholars life skills leadership training and career development workshops.

Founded in 1998, the Taylor Michaels Scholarship Program is aptly named after Taylor Michaels, the inspiring Chief Operating Officer for Magic Johnson Enterprises who passed away that year. The program develops future leaders by supporting socioeconomically challenged high achievers through completion of their undergraduate degrees and offers support including laptops, mentorships and internships. TMSP Alumni have gone on to graduate from top Universities including USC, UCLA, Brown, Howard and Morehouse, amoung others.

Since 1991, the Magic Johnson Foundation (MJF) has served and enriched urban communities nationwide. MJF evolved from an HIV grant-making organization to one that advocates for community-based organizations and supports educational empowerment through HIV/AIDS education/testing/awareness work, minority college access and digital literacy.
