Many students fail to realize their full potential because their parents cannot afford to provide them with basic school supplies or health care. Proceeds from the walk will provide needed books, car fare for students to attend school and nutritious meals. It will also support a recently instituted dental care program at Kingston College.
Ryerson Afro Caribbean Students Association alumni, an affiliate group, will join the walk to raise funds for the Roger Mc Tair Student Filmmaker Award. The award is granted to students attending Ryerson University.
The company, The Kingston College Development Trust Fund (KCDTF), was incorporated in 1987. Its principal activity is the maintenance of a fund, the income of which is designated to be used for the benefit of Kingston College.
The Barry Huie Scholarship was initiated by Barry’s family who donated funds collected at his memorial. The Scholarship was open to a Kingston College Student accepted to pursue post-secondary studies. There has been two recipients, namely Akeem Thorpe in 2013, and Demoye Whitely in 2014.
