Mark Boswell Basketball Scholarship Fund
September 9, 1971 - August 21, 2022
The Mark Boswell Basketball Scholarship commemorates the values and passion of Mark Boswell, otherwise affectionally known as Boz. Boz loved people, his community, and basketball equally and this scholarship fund is in honour of his memory. Through valuable donations, the goal of this fund is to provide financial support to talented young basketball players who are in need of extra assistance to pursue their training and career goals as basketball players. The fund will support training fees, uniforms, and other personal sport-related needs of award recipients. Funds raised for this scholarship will be directed to supporting scholarship winners who will be announced at the annual Fathers Day Barbeque and Fundraiser.
It is an honour for The Power to Be International (PTBI) to hold and administer this scholarship fund in Boz's honor. As a community organization and registered Canadian charity, PTBI had been blessed by the support of Boz since our inception 2009. Boz has attended PTBI fundraisers, supported program delivery, and one very special year in Jamaica (2014), Boz volunteered his time and efforts to provide haircuts to boys attending our literacy and leadership camp in Jamaica.
Members of PTBI feel strongly about supporting and administering this scholarship, with integrity, in Boz's honor. May he rest in peace as we do our best to continue his legacy.
