KINGSTON, Jamaica - Seven high school student athletes received scholarship grants from celebrated Jamaican sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce during a presentation ceremony at Devon House in Kingston, Tuesday.
The grants, valued at more than $100,000 each, will go towards the students' tuition, lunch money and other costs associated with their schooling.
The grants were a part of Fraser-Pryce's effort to assist Jamaican student athletes through her Pocket Rocket Foundation.
In handing over the scholarships, Fraser-Pryce urged the students to believe in their ability to excel in the fields of academics and sports as they grew into productive citizens.
"Whatever you want in this life you can achieve if you just believe. You have to make sacrifices," Fraser-Pryce said.
The Pocket Rocket Foundation is supported by her major Corporate Sponsors Nike, Sagicor and Grace Foods.
