The purpose of this award is to celebrate and support African Nova Scotian youth along their academic and professional journeys, as they continue to be change makers within their communities.
This scholarship is offered in memory of Quintez Downey, whose life was cut tragically short early in 2021. Quintez was an African Nova Scotian student athlete, born and raised in the historical Black community of North Preston. He was devoted to his family, his friends, and his faith. Recognized for his abilities to bring about the best in others, Quintez’s legacy of Black Excellence - Commitment to Family and Community, Leadership, Education, and Business will be memorialized through the recipient of this scholarship.
