Alice and Eleazer Fagon raised two girls and three boys and they all had the opportunity to attend college. How did they do it? The story is not unique, in fact, it is quite common: poor couple from Jamaica, believers, hardworking, humble yet proud.
When I told my mother on the front steps of our Toronto home many years ago that I could not go to Oakwood College because I did not have enough money, she simply said to me, “how have others with little to nothing done it? Go to school!” The message was simple and clear.
In their less than perfect but determined way and their desire to see that ‘betta mus’ come’ for me, is what drove me to attend Oakwood College.
In honor of my parents, this scholarship is for the student who is looking for their ‘betta mus’ come’. (Andrew Fagon)
