The scholarship fund will disburse J$1.9 Million (19 students) of which J$1.0 Million (10 students at J$100,000 per student) will be to KC.

David "Wagga" Hunt was a distinguished past student of Kingston College (KC) High School in Jamaica, 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 cardiac arrest. His passion for youth and sports were unequaled.

The foundation offers scholarships to deserving students at recipient schools: KC and Calabar in Kingston, Jamaica. The scholarship covers students from Grade 8 to Grade 13 at a cost of approximately US$4,800 (J$600,000) per student and covers tuition, books, lunch and other school related expenses.

The recipients are chosen from nominees received from the school’s Grade 7 students who display commendable academic performance and attitude, are involved in co-curricular activities, and are deemed in need of financial assistance. To date, the foundation has awarded more than 25 scholarships totaling US$80,000 (J$10 million).
