2013-09-17 07:56:39 | (0 Comments)
The first set of recipients for scholarship from the Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce Pocket Rocket Foundation will be announced today at Devon House in Kingston.
The function to announce the winners is scheduled to start at 9 o’clock in the morning.
The Pocket Rocket Foundation was launched in May by the two-time 100-metre Olympic champion.
In July, GraceKennedy, which five years ago signed Fraser-Pryce as its ambassador, pledged a million dollar to the foundation.
The Pocket Rocket Foundation is an incorporated not-for-profit entity that operates exclusively for charitable purposes.
Through donations and fundraising, the foundation will provide scholarships to high-school students from second to sixth form, who represent their school in any sporting discipline.
Minister of Education, Ronald Thwaites will be the keynote speaker at today’s function.
