David Michael Eminess Memorial Scholarship
The David Michael Eminess Memorial Scholarship is named for a beloved Academic Upgrading student, who was on his way to completing his studies in 2016 when he tragically lost his life to gun violence. We honour David's dedication to his education, family and community by presenting an Academic Upgrading student with this memorial scholarship.
In 2018, William Chemno was awarded the inaugural scholarship.
You can learn more about William's story in this article written by Phylicia Davis-Wesseling and published by This Magazine.
