Sharing details about the scholarship, Walter told MailOnline: 'It is our intention to honor the memory and legacy of Chadwick Boseman, T. L. Hanna Class or ’95, with a memorial scholarship. 

'We would like to work with Chadwick’s family to establish a scholarship fund for graduating seniors at T. L. Hanna.''
