The Markevic A. Johnson Educational Fund was established in March of 1999 in memory of Keisha Marie Kidd. Keisha was a graduate of Delaware State University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. Keisha passed shortly after her son, Markevic was born. He is now fourteen years old. She loved pursuing her education and clearly understood its value.
The annual Scholarship Luncheon is held to commemorate Keisha’s life as well as to generate contributions for a scholarship fund for Markevic and two other graduating seniors pursuing a college education to Delaware State University & Wilmington University in the fall of 2016.
