James Patterson Announces Scholarships for Palm Beach State College
STEAM 2019: James Patterson in conversation with moderator Suzanne Boyd. Kravis Center, February 20, 2019.
The Seventh Annual STEAM Luncheon brought more than an afternoon of friends, food and fundraising; it brought hope for the future.
World’s bestselling author and Palm Beach resident James Patterson made clear the
role Palm Beach State plays in the community, “This is a gem of a school and the heart
of Palm Beach County.” Patterson, whose philanthropic outreach is as impressive as
his storytelling prowess, told event moderator Suzanne Boyd and a Kravis Center crowd
of nearly 600 that he had been so “stunned” by the impressive work happening at the
College that he would be establishing scholarships for the largest institution of
higher education in Palm Beach County. While his scholarships are benefitting students,
James Patterson’s words and praise are showing the community that Palm Beach County’s
best kept secret is a story worth sharing.
