Brooks’ four children offered full scholarships

Brooks, 27, was killed earlier this month by an Atlanta police after officers received a call about a man sleeping in a vehicle in a Wendy's drive-through. He leaves behind three daughters — 1, 2 and 8 years old — and a 13-year-old stepson. Hours before he was killed, Brooks was out with his youngest daughter celebrating her birthday and had more celebration plans in storefor the next day. The $600,000 scholarships will cover tuition, meals, room and board for the four children, the university said in a statement. "It was without hesitation that we made the decision to partner with our notable alumna and entrepreneur Pinky Cole to help the family and children of Mr. Rayshard Brooks," university president George T. French. Jr. said in a statement. "The senseless death of Mr. Brooks will undoubtedly have long-term financial effects on the family and these scholarships will not only provide them with a means to access a world class education, but will help them on their pathway of success." The alumna who partnered with the college, Aisha "Pinky" Cole is the CEO and operator of the Slutty Vegan Restaurant and the Pinky Cole Foundation.Read More – Source
