The Bahamas Olympic Committee (BOC) recently hosted a luncheon for sports leaders. This luncheon was part of a leadership seminar that was led by Performance Consultant Lester R. Cox. The event focused on results through motivation, productivity and personal excellence. In attendance were members of the basketball federation including its secretary general Clifford Rahming.

During the luncheon, D’Arcy Rahming, BOC treasurer, unveiled the BOC’s scholarship program that allows family members to honor local heroes who may not have received the proper recognition. “The idea grew out of my own experience with my father, who loved sports especially basketball and loved young people,” said Rahming. “This Olympic scholarship gives my father’s contributions the ability to live beyond him, as well as to help a young athlete.”

Following the first executive meeting, the BOC adopted the scholarship idea as one of its many fundraisers.

“There are many basketball players who never got their due,” said Sharon Storr, assistant secretary of the Bahamas Basketball Federation (BBF), who sat next to the BOC treasurer at the luncheon. “What is amazing to me is Rahming’s father, David ‘Porky’ Rahming, helped me with my shooting game many years ago at SAC. There are many untold stories that need to be told.”

The scholarship program is affordable for any family as it can be secured for $600 per year and the donation can be done monthly for as little as $50 per month. Proceeds from the scholarship go toward elite level athletes as well as grassroot athletes. Persons who sponsor the scholarships are given certificates that they can put in their homes or business places as well as a page on the Bahamas Olympic Committee’s website, plus various other benefits like VIP tickets to current events.

Persons can choose the discipline of their choice from any of the Olympic sports practiced in The Bahamas. It began with judo, but has now been expanded to all disciplines.
