(AllHipHop News) Moncks Corner’s own Lenard “Charlamagne Tha God” McKelvey returned to his home state of South Carolina this weekend. The Breakfast Club co-host attended South Carolina State University’s 2019 homecoming.
While at his mother’s alma mater in Orangeburg, Charlamagne presented the HBCU with a $250,000 check. The money is allocated towards providing scholarships to black women interested in pursuing careers in English, communications, or mental health.

My mother is an alumni of @scstate1896 class of 75. Today was South Carolina States homecoming and I had the honor of announcing “The Ford Family Endowed Scholarship Fund” Ford is my mother’s maiden name and my grandmothers last name. We will be providing scholarships to black women in South Carolina who Major in English, (my mother’s major) Communications, (because I’m a Radio/TV Guy), and for any sister that wants to be a mental health professional. Always remember investing in an HBCU is investing in the future of our people so the next time an HBCU ask for money, open that wallet. It’s a blessing to be a blessing! All Praises Due To God!!! P.S. Speaking of GOD my creator told me to announce that I’m tapped out until February so to all friends and family don’t even consider calling me this holiday season for nothing. Have a blessed day. #wefightdifferent
