The 2016 edition of the David “Wagga” Hunt Scholarship Ball will be held on Saturday, January 16, 2016.
This red-carpet event will be held in the elegant atrium of the National Education Association (NEA) building at 1201 16th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20036, USA, under the distinguished patronage of Jamaican Ambassador and Plenipotentiary to the United States, His Excellency Ralph S. Thomas.
Howard University will be honored for their contribution to higher education and nation building in the Caribbean.
David Hunt, a distinguished past student of Kingston College (KC) – High School in Jamaica, was co-founder of Meadhaven United Football Club, former General Secretary of the Kingston & St. Andrew Football Association (KSAFA), former General Secretary of the Minor League Football Association, one of Jamaica’s most notable Track and Field Analysts, former Jamaica National Under-17 Football coach, and KC, Calabar High School (Calabar), and Meadowbrook High School Manning Cup coach.
He led Calabar to both the Manning Cup and Oliver Shield titles in 2005 before his untimely passing in October 2007 from a heart attack. His passion for youth and sports were unequaled.
The goal of the Scholarship Initiative is to offer two (2) scholarships approximately US$1,000 per student each year, to a 2nd year KC and Calabar student selected from nominated Grade Seven students who displays commendable academic performance and attitude, is involved in sports or other co-curricular activities, and is in need of financial assistance.
