Kingsley Malcom

Kingsley Malcom is a local man who learned about “paying it forward” in an interesting way.  He was in college, studying for his undergraduate degree, and applied to the Nursing Program at the University of Kansas.  While describing the program to a co-worker, a man overheard him and told him, “if you get in, I’ll pay your first semester tuition.”  Kingsley could not believe it.  The gentleman told Kingsley not to pay him back, just to pay it forward to someone else.  A few years later, Kingsley and his wife created the “Pay It Forward Scholarship.”
