Coming up on The Queen Latifah Show Monday, March 31st – Queen surprises one young deserving student with three scholarship checks totally $30K! Ashley Booth is a New Jersey native and currently a freshman attending Johnson C. Smith University in North Carolina. An unsuspecting Ashley was in the audience and was brought onto the stage when Queen announced that she has been named the recipient of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Rising Star Scholarship and was presented with a $10K check. As Ashley’s stunned and emotional reaction shows, she was completely overwhelmed and even more so when as she learned that executive producers of The Queen Latifah Show, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Sony Pictures Television were each matching the UNCF’s scholarship with two additional checks for $10K!
