The Judy M. Braithwaite Family Foundation, Inc. was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia on January 20, 1999. As stated in its articles of incorporation, “the sole purpose of the Foundation is to memorialize the achievements of the late Judy M. Braithwaite by awarding an annual scholarship to a graduating senior from Hampton High School,” located in Hampton, Virginia https://hampton.gov/.
After incorporating, an application for the JMBF Foundation, Inc. Scholarship was developed and a competitive process was created to disseminate the application to graduating seniors at Hampton High School who possessed outstanding intellectual talent, showed evidence of consistent community service, and had a strong sense of social justice. In year 2017, an electronic application and review system was established to refine and enhance the selection process.
Since its inception, the Guidance department at Hampton High School has been committed to disseminating the JMBF Foundation Scholarship Application broadly and has assisted with gathering a strong pool of candidates from which to select an annual scholarship recipient. Concomitant with the development of the application, review and selection process, family members, friends and associate donors of the Braithwaite family have contributed financially since established to sustain the viability of the Foundation.
● Dr. Ronald L. Braithwaite, husband of 26 years to the late Judy M. Braithwaite and father of Malika, Kisha, Aisha, Jamila, Nia and Ronnie; and, grandfather of Myla, Zara, Amir, and David, was instrumental in the initial foundation structure, logistical aspects of administering the JMBF Foundation Scholarship, and funding to the Foundation. He remains supportive of the Foundation’s goals as well as the endeavors of his adult children and his grandchildren.
● Dr. James M. Patton, pictured with the 2022 JMBF Foundation Scholarship Recipient, has been an integral part of the JMBF Foundation’s oversight and management since its inception. As extended family and a long-standing friend of the late Judy M. Braithwaite, Dr. Patton’s commitment to the Foundation has remained consistent and among many things has encompassed providing presentations to interested Hampton High School Students to encourage a large candidate pool of Scholarship Applicants, to date.
● Core Family and Friend Collective who admire and love the late Judy M. Braithwaite, have consistently supported the JMBF Foundation Scholarship Award through annual financial contributions and by attending special JMBF Foundation, Inc. events and small affairs since its Incorporation in 1999.
