Abdul, who is a recent graduate of UMass Boston, said he learned about the MKLF scholarship at the Boys and Girls Club in Chelsea, which became something of a second home after the death of his mother. . . . The next day, the Pats owner attended an event celebrating the inaugural graduates of the Kraft Center for Community Health. The keynote speech was delivered by Partners in Health founder Paul Farmer.
