The Xavier O. Joy Scholarship Fund

The Xavier O. Joy fund provides for Illinois students wishing to pursue higher education at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. The recipient(s) will be a current young leader who seeks to make a difference in their community.

Xavier O. Joy was a graduate of Chicago’s esteemed Whitney Young High School and an accomplished student-athlete who attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, where he played football. Xavier returned to Chicago on a mission to give back to his community by teaching and tutoring disadvantaged youths. Tragically, in 2017, his life was cut short by senseless gun violence. His untimely death was a loss to our Chicago communities, which are in need of determined young men seeking to make a positive difference. A higher education scholarship has been established in honor of his life. Preference will be given to children of REALTORS®.
