Notable amongst the distinguished group of over 100 attendees were Stan Lathan, an accomplished producer and one of Hollywood’s most prolific directors of television and film, Marques Johnson, NBA/UCLA legend & sports analyst for Fox Sports Net, Tamala Jones, American film and TV actress as well as Sammy Watson of TMT. Minister of Education, Youths and Sports, Patrick Faber was also in attendance.
Also present was Belizean native and ABC World News Co-Anchor, Kendis Gibson, who pledged to use his current platform to support.
