WESTBROOK, WRIGHT DONATE $50,000
Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Portland forward Dorell Wright partnered with the United Negro College Fund to establish the KB3 Memorial Educational Fund, a scholarship fund named for their childhood friend, the late Khelcey Barrs III.
The scholarship was created to assist graduating high school seniors who face financial challenges that threaten their aspirations to pursue and attain a college education.
Westbrook and Wright presented $50,000 to the UNCF to fund the establishment of the KB3 Memorial Educational Fund, and after over 1,000 submissions 10 students have been chosen as recipients.
Each of the 10 awards provides $5,000 toward tuition at a four-year, fully accredited U.S. college or university. The individuals selected were students who attended K-12 in an inner-city environment who possess a strong track record of performance and leadership and aspire to be first-generation college students.
“The award is intended to help our youth understand that with drive and passion, they can reach any goal they set for themselves,” Westbrook said in a statement.

NBATV will air a special NBA media day show Friday from 3-4 p.m., and will have a reporter live at the Thunder's media day interviewing various players as part of the show.
