Redstone spreads the wealth

Mogul makes $1.5 million donation to schools

Sumner Redstone is spreading his wealth around to educational institutions, making a $1.5 million donation to Harvard U. and Boston Latin School.

Redstone’s $1 million donation to Harvard College and Harvard Law School will be used to establish scholarships for 20 undergrad students, as well as funding for 10 post-graduate public service fellowships at the law school.

Redstone is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law.

“As the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s presidency nears, we reflect on how his influence sparked an era of optimism, activism and national service,” Redstone said in announcing the donation. “I have established these scholarships to help celebrate President Kennedy’s spirit by fostering a focus on education and a renewed commitment to public service. I am honored to have the opportunity to recognize and encourage these admirable young men and women.”

Redstone has given $500,000 to Boston Latin School, of which he is also a graduate. The coin will help support a variety of programs and the installation of a roofscape learning lab. The school is described as the nation’s first public school and the oldest school in the country. It is marking its 375th anniversary this year.
