The Inaugural Officer Kennis Croom Memorial Scholarship Gala will honor his legacy while raising much-needed funds for under-resourced students to become great leaders, through access to holistic educational opportunities, resources, and community development,” according to a press release from The Croom Foundation.

Officer Kennis Croom was killed in the line of duty in June 2022 while responding to a domestic call in Meridian, Mississippi.

This past year, the Croom Foundation has “provided full college scholarships to brilliant but needy scholars, provided financial support to single mothers, provided computers and school supplies to students in rural areas as well as clothes, food, and books.”
