Earvin 'Magic' Johnson and the Magic Johnson Foundation Give Students their 'Blueprint for Success' at Annual Leadership Conference
Date:7/10/2009

LOS ANGELES, July 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Chairman and Founder of the Magic Johnson Foundation (MJF) will kickoff the Foundation's annual Taylor Michaels Scholarship Program Life Skills Leadership Conference in Los Angeles with a keynote address to the 150 deserving scholarship students attending. They come from all around the country anticipating the four-day program that promises to educate, entertain and empower. The Taylor Michaels Scholarship Program (TMSP) was implemented to subsidize education expenses for college bound students who show exemplary scholastic achievement but are stifled by their socio-economic condition.

"We are extremely passionate about our students in the Program and their well being, and we work on a daily basis to provide them with the necessary tools for success," said Towalame Austin, President of the Magic Johnson Foundation. To date, the program has supported 300 students. In addition to providing financial support to scholarship recipients, the TMSP offers a mentoring and internship program that prepares each Scholar for the workplace and post graduation. With this year's theme, "Your Blueprint for Success," the Foundation continues on with their tradition to prepare Scholars for academic success, career paths and life in general.

During the highly-anticipated four days, the Foundation will host a series of seminars. On Friday, July 10th, the Scholars will be a part of a Financial Park simulation to better assist them with budgeting while preparing them to enter into the "real" world. On Saturday, July 11th, they will participate in a Brother 2 Brother/Sister 2 Sister workshop, which will offer an open forum for them to candidly talk about personal life issues and the challenges they face as young men and women. The Foundation will also partner with UCLA's Make Art/Stop AIDS program as an encouragement for students to learn more
