Palmer Trinity School (PTS) student, Jahmir Everett, class of 2023, was awarded the first annual Colin Powell scholarship for the Episcopal Church of Southeast Florida. The scholarship presentation took place on October 30 at Holy Family Episcopal Church with the Rector of Holy Family, Father Horace Ward; The Reverend Dr. Kwasi Thornell; and The Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church.

Everett was recognized for his strong academic record, athletic leadership as captain of both his football and basketball teams, selfless service within his community, and active involvement with the Black Student Union at Palmer Trinity.

“Jahmir is the consummate leader who personifies the school commitment to: ‘Lead with Love,’” said Palmer Trinity Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Mary Ellen Cassini.

The Colin Powell Black Student Scholarship Fund was established by the Howard Thurman Center to provide scholarships for students who wish to attend Episcopal Schools within the Diocese of Southeast Florida. The fund is in honor of Colin Powell, an American politician, statesman, diplomat and United States Army Officer. It is to be a living legacy to Colin Powell’s life as well as inspire young Black people to strive to be the best they can be and take advantage of opportunities as they have presented them.
