Dear Mr. Hawthorne,

I would like to thank you and the Mavis & Ephraim Hawthorne Golden Krust Foundation for selecting me to receive this years scholarship. The awards ceremony is one i will always remember because of the pride I felt of having the Jamaican culture a part of my heritage. I sincerely want to thank you for investing in my future and with your help I am off to a great start. As I embark on my college education at Fordham University, I do so knowing that I have your support.

Thank you for all yo do in the community here and abroad in securing a bright tomorrow.

Vice Chair & Treasurer
Each day I strive to live as though I am the embodiment of my parents Ephraim & Mavis. They were caring nurturers providing us with a balance of the qualities that they themselves were made of . Their luminous smile radiated peace and joy in everyone in their proximity. In our beloved parents were united admirable qualities and quaint contradictions: they were righteous and reverent, but soft-hearted and compassionate; stoic and formidable, but comforting and protective of their own. For these reasons, and many more, we decided to endow a foundation under their name. This foundation truly defines the innate beauty of both our parents and provides a channel for education and health care for those who deserve it most. We will remember them as they were- vibrant, dynamic and compassionate with inner beauty that death cannot erase from our memories.

The establishment of the Foundation is a most befitting manner to honor the memory and bring to fruition the dreams of Mavis and Ephraim Hawthorne.

Quality education, healthcare and nutrition are three essential mission/goals of the Mavis and Ephraim Hawthorne Foundation. As a physician and parent, these goals are extremely important to me.

I am dedicated to this Foundation and it´s mission.

My grandparent’s strong belief in education was one of the factors that lead me to pursue a career as an ed- ucator. | see first hand how an education opens doors and brings dreams to fruition. This foundation acts as a vehicle for that to occur. I am truly proud to be a part of that. The opportunity to give back to my com- munity, foster ideals in deserving students, and cement my grandparent’s legacy through this foundations scholarships, is what drives me to be a board member and an active participant in this organization.
