Florida chapter’s Audley Hewett is well known within the Fortis community for his outstanding contributions to Kingston College.

Recently Audley received a notification from Dr. Allan Cunningham, the Global Diaspora Council Representative for the Southern United States, applauding him for his leadership and philanthropic contributions.

Dr. Cunningham went on to add, “you are a diamond in our Diamond Jubilee 60th Independence Celebrations. You have certainly ignited us as a nation. “

Audley and his wife Shelly are best known for their efforts related to the Annual Purple Session fundraiser in South Florida which draws old boys from every corner of the globe. But they are involved in much more. And over the years Audley’s has left his imprint on every important project at KC for several decades.

His unmatched commitment and tireless work on behalf of KC has not gone unnoticed. Audley travels to Jamaica regularly to attend to matters relating to KC and there is hardly a project benefitting KC in which he does not play a role.

His expertise is raising funds. While he appreciates high tech, Audley understands the effectiveness of “high touch” and is in contact with numerous old boys who over the years have donated to various projects with his encouragement.

Audley attended KC from 1949 to 1956. He excelled in tennis and track and field. And was on the 1955 team that won the Alexander and Mutual Life Tennis trophies for the first time. In Track and Field, he represented KC in the triple jump as a member of the 1954 winning Champs team.

He has been recognized for his dedication and leadership by the Kingston College Old Boys Association which honored him by conferring him with a Life Membership.
