David, 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. The scholarship period for each recipient covers Grade Eight to Grade Thirteen (six years) at a budgeted cost of US$6,000 per student, and covers tuition, books, lunch, and other related expenses. To date, 15 scholarships have been awarded totaling more than US$50,000.
