Rapper Kodak Black is honoring Meadow Pollack, one of the victims of the Parkland mass shooting in 2018.

On Sunday, Kodak visited Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida. Sunday, Feb. 14th marks the three-year anniversary of the tragic mass shooting that claimed the lives of 17 people.

There was a socially distanced tribute in honoring Pollack (who was an 18-year-old victim of the shooting). During the shooting, Pollack was actually trying to save another student.

According to Black’s attorney Bradford Cohen, Kodak was one of Pollack’s favorite rappers.

During the tribute, Kodak announced that he will be launching a $100,000 scholarship in her name at the Southeastern University Law School, where her brother is currently attending.

Kodak will fund the scholarship at Southeastern University Law School for students who are studying for a degree in criminal justice and prison reform. The school’s board will select students based on academics, an essay, and merit.

“They [were] young and none of them deserved this. They wasn’t in this life to be killed,” Black said at the tribute.

“Meadow Pollack, she’s so beautiful, but the situation is bigger than Meadow Pollack,” he added. “It’s about all of us. It’s about all the other kids. It’s about the whole school. It’s about all of Broward [County].”
