AAN member Yolanda Davis posted a message recently mentioning Audley Hewett being honored by his alma Mater Kingston College with their new Tennis court being named in his honor.

She wrote the following:

“AAN member Audley Hewett has been following this mantra over the many decades that we have known him. He has always been considerate, kind, and generous.

The guy has a tender heart, and he is not alone. His wife Shelly has been 'all in' supporting the many philanthropic ventures that he engages in.

The main one of course is supporting his alma mater, Kingston College, but he has personally reached out to anyone in need, like us. When Adi's sister, Kimuir, was in need of financial assistance, he offered her a job at his business place down the road in Hollywood, Florida (H&M Health Services), after which she was able to attend Morehouse Medical School.

In addition, he went all out to assist Adi's other sister, Alia aka Shanee, during her preparation for the Olympic games and ensured that she continued her training. She would later break the World Record, much to the delight of the Hewett’s.”

Alia broke the World Record in the 100m Breaststroke.

Additional comments included the following:

A more sincere, humble, trustworthy, and supportive person you would be hard pressed to meet. Truly a blessed soul. Thank you for all that you have done, Mr. Hewett, you are a 'Commander of Distinction' in our book.

He has been doing this for quite a while note this commendation from 'The KC Times:' "Audley Hewett, attended KC from 1949 to 1956. He excelled in tennis and track and field. And was on the 1955 team that won the Alexander and Mutu- al Life Tennis trophies for the first time. In Track and Field, he represented KC in the triple jump as a member of the 1954
winning Champs team.

He has been recognized for his dedication and leadership by the Kingston College Old Boys Association which honored him by conferring him with a Life Membership."

The AAN network is a newsletter published in honor of Adi Atkinson who passed unexpectedly at a young age.
