The Erin Tierney Kramp scholarship goes to a student who exhibits courage and perseverance in the face of adversity. Ibrahim Kamara, this year’s winner, faced adversity that few Americans could even imagine.
Ibrahim fled civil war and a sadistic regime of rebels who invaded Freetown, Sierra Leone, when he was a child. Education suffered as survival became paramount. Ibrahim witnessed atrocities and ran from the war, only to return four months later and lose his sight.
