Wale Gives College Student $25,000 Scholarship!


Rock the Bells artist Wale awarded Hampton University student, Lauren Pryor, with a $25,000 scholarship! The contest was held by Norfolk hip-hop stating 103 JAMZ, she was the 25th caller and the winner.

“I was on my way to a friend’s home in Hampton when I heard the radio challenge that the 25th caller would win the prize,” said Pryor. “The station said to call between 4 and 5 p.m. I called four or five times. The line was always busy. On about the 14th call I told myself to give it a rest then, I heard a man say ‘hello.’ “I didn’t believe it. He told me there were millions of calls and he only picked up the phone 14 times nationwide,” Pryor said in an article in the Gloucester-Mathews Gazette-Journal.

Congrats to Lauren! It’s great to see Wale paying forward the success of “Gifted.”
