Missouri State University president, Clif Smart, has announced that he and his wife, Gail, will make the first contribution towards a George Floyd Scholarship at the school.

His message on Twitter Friday is in response to a challenge issued during Floyd's memorial Thursday in Minneapolis.

Scott Hagan, president of North Central University in Minneapolis, challenged all colleges and universities in the U.S. to establish a scholarship in memory of Floyd.

Smart said he'll share details next week on how people can donate to the scholarship.
