Flint scholarship plan gets $2M from Pistons owner, utility

LANSING, Mich. (AP) Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores and a major Michigan utility's foundation each committed $1 million Wednesday to covering college tuition for Flint high school graduates in the wake of the city's water crisis.

The $2 million in combined pledges for a fledgling "Flint Promise" program are the first to be publicly announced since work began more than a year ago. It is not clear how much more has been promised privately.

Gores, the founder of Los Angeles-based Platinum Equity and a Flint native, previously pledged $10 million to address needs in his hometown and in 2015 partnered with Magic Johnson on a similar scholarship campaign in Michigan's capital city of Lansing. He said in a statement: "Every student who works hard deserves a chance to earn a college degree. We want to give those kids and their families a reason to dream and provide them the resources to make those dreams come true."
