Pocket Rocket Foundation 2021-2021 Scholarship Recipients

Image

Coming off the success of our partnership with the City of Miramar where we raised well needed funds from an auction, The Pocket Rocket Foundation is intentional in its ability to cater to even more student athletes. This is only possible through partnerships and the collective efforts with different companies and individuals not only in Jamaica but with the Diaspora overseas. Today, Ambassador Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, through her Pocket Rocket Foundation officially welcomed her 2021 Scholarship Recipients. Each student athlete received a cheque for $50,000 (2nd -5th Form), $60,000 (6th Form) along with with grocery baskets from GraceKennedy. Digicel also presented each recipient with a $10,000 Sangster’s Book Voucher, Hi-Lo Supermarket Voucher valued at $10,000 and $1500 Phone credit.

Awardees this year are;
Tafada Wright ( St. Jago)
Kimesha Beckford ( Manchester High)
Anecia Taylor ( Holmwood Technical)
Olivia Petrekin ( St. Andrew High)
Malachi King ( Wolmer’s Boy’s)

This brings to date, a total of 55 ( 29 Females/ 26 Males ) student athletes across 22 different high schools competing in 11 different sporting arenas that have benefited from Academic Scholarship!

“I am extremely excited at the Foundation’s ability to not only fulfill the Agenda outlined in our mandate but increase the offerings for 2022. I thank Digicel for the additional tokens of book vouchers and Hi-Lo supermarket vouchers for the recipients given the reality of cost of living and food prices. This gesture goes a really long way for the families of these students.”- SFP

Scholarships are awarded based on exemplary performance in both academics and athletics.
