Kenneth A. Joseph worked at College Park Scholars in the Media, Self and Society program from 1999 until his death in 2009. Ken worked hard to ensure that students participating in the program were empowered to achieve their full potential both as students and as citizens of the world. It was important to him that students understood their responsibilities to improve the world around them and to help those most vulnerable. He was a devoted mentor and friend. In recognition of Ken's legacy, the Joseph Family established this endowed scholarship to support students in Scholars, with the hope that they will continue his commitment to the betterment of society.
