Phillip Knight Endows Stanford With $400 Million Knignt-Hennessy Scholarships

Nike is one of the premier brands
Keeps growing and the fads of competitors it continues to withstand
Slogans of “Just Do It”
Motivation that one should never quit
Images of Air Jordan soaring through the air from behind
A free throw line to dunk is  an image to blow one’s mind
Today Phillip Knight is soaring though the air
With part of his fortune and name with Stanford to share
Knight-Hennessy Scholarships with $400 million from him to make this world a better place
100 graduate scholarships to tackle issues like poverty, education and climate change that is  remaking this planet’s face
Stanford and this planet owes Phillip Knight a huge gratitude debt
The 100 scholars and their minds eager to solve the problems that the  planet beset
