TWO STUDENTS GIVEN SCHOLAR AWARDS

Two Virgin Island students are recipients of the 1999-2000 Theodore E. Sharp Scholar Awards.
The awards fund has been established at the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands by Mrs. Elisabeth Swinson Sharp and other family members and friends, to honor the memory of Theodore Elting Sharp.
The $1,000 for the 1999-2000 T.E. Sharp Awards was divided between two recipients, Naima Jacobs-El of St. Croix and Watisha Brooks of St. Thomas.
Ms. Jacobs-El, a graduate of St. Croix Educational Complex, is currently enrolled in a summer program at the Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Her goal is to become an ophthalmologist. She has volunteered with the American Red Cross and with an extensive Mangrove Restoration Project.
Ms. Brooks is a graduate of Charlotte Amalie High School, where she was a member of the Student Council, the Mello Hawks Steel Pan and the CAHS Concert Choir. She has also served as a hospital volunteer and as a "Big Sister" at the Bethlehem House.
The awards, which will be given annually, place an emphasis on academic excellence and community service.
Theodore E, Sharp, a long-time resident of St. Thomas, was committed to higher education and served as a volunteer with Rotary International for many years. By endowing this memorial fund at CFVI, family and friends wished to share the spirit of a husband, father, friend and colleague, "a kind, gentle and caring person who did a lot of good in his life."
The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands was established in 1990 to serve the children and families of the Virgin Islands. Anyone wishing information about CFVI may write PO Box 11790, St. Thomas, 00801, or call Dee Baecher-Brown at 774-6031.
