On Dec 25, 2015, HTIL president (Robbie Hemmings), buoyed by the Christmas spirit of giving, stepped up to the plate to fund a scholarship drive fundraiser for Aston Harris, a student of his High School Alma Matter â€“ Cornwall College (CC) in Montego Bay. This was an act of paying it forward, as almost 28 years ago Cornwall College Alumni Chapter in New York endowed him with stipends to assist with his schooling.
The following is an excerpt from the Cornwall College Alumni Chapter in Florida WhatsApp Group Chat:
This gift that Christmas day to Aston Harris became the inspiration to the start the Barrett Town Scholarship Program. And as a symbolic gesture, HTIL endowed $1000 USD the following year on Christmas day to Kick-off the Barrett Town Scholarship Fund Program.
