     FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – A new scholarship is now available for undergraduate minority students studying business at Nova Southeastern University (NSU), thanks to a $50,000 donation from McKinley Insurance Services, announced the firm’s President and CEO Ralph Campbell.

    The Jim McKinley Endowed Scholarship Fund, named in memory of the company’s founder who passed away last year, will generate annual scholarships to support full-time students of the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business Entrepreneurship (HSBE) who have grade point averages of at least 2.5.

    “Jim McKinley always supported students wanting to pursue higher education,” explained Campbell. “This scholarship preserves his legacy of helping others and helps students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to attend such a prestigious university as NSU.

    “Many minority students are the first in their families to attend college, so hopefully this scholarship will help break that cycle and help prepare the business leaders of the future.”

    The McKinley Fund is one of the first NSU scholarships for minority students. 

    “We salute Ralph Campbell and his vision for the future of education,” said Alan Levan, who chairs the school’s Ambassador Board, a select group of business leaders who support the school with their financial gifts and experience. “Scholarships like this insure that our school graduates a more diverse and prepared group of business professionals.”
