As expected, Eagles quarterback Mike Vick gave the commencement address at the Camelot schools graduation ceremony on Friday.
As not expected, he presented two students with scholarships.
Per the Associated Press, Vick said that he would be giving $5,000 each to Monique Joseph and Rickey Savage. Joseph will attend Penn State. Savage plans to go to Virginia Union University.
“I heard a little bit about it yesterday, but I had no idea how generous he was going to be to our students,” Camelot CEO Todd Bock said. “I think our kids, our schools and our story really resonated with him.”
Camelot has six locations in Philadelphia. The schools serve roughly 1,800 students who have emotional, disciplinary, and/or academic problems.
