Reggae icon and Denham Town High School alumni Buju Banton has established a scholarship in honour of his mother Murdine Clarke.
It will be awarded to financially challenged boys at his alma mater who, despite hardships, excel academically.
Fifteen-year-old Tajay Bailey is the first recipient of the Scholarship.
The teen, whose mother is unwell and whose father is deceased, has been under the sole care of his grandmother.
He will receive a grant totalling 100 hundred thousand dollars for the procurement of school supplies.
Buju Banton pointed out that his foundation was established to assist students such as Bailey.
