Jhevonte Webster receiving the CB Group UWI 5K/Khadene “Miss Kitty” Hylton Scholarship being presented on her behalf by Moses “Beenie Man” Davis. The presentation took place at the launch of the 5K fund raising event on October 2 at the UWI Regional Headquarters.

Emcee and CB/UWI 5K Ambassador Jezeel Martin held the audience rapt with his life journey from the gritty streets of August Town to the halls of the university and the gilded corridors of one of Kingston's legendary law firms, a journey made possible in no small part by the CB/UWI 5K scholarship award.
