Former Hornets president funds full scholarships for students with learning differences – WSOC TV

CHARLOTTE — A school in west Charlotte for students with learning disabilities received a generous donation from the former Hornets president.

Fred Whitfield and his nonprofit Hooptee Charities donated $336,000 in scholarship money to the John Crosland School.

The donation covers full scholarships for four incoming students.

“The Crosland School is a unique school. They touch kids with differences, and for us to be able to identify another group of kids who are deserving and fit right into our mission at Hooptee Charities is something we’re excited about,” said Whitfield.

Last month, Whitfield stepped down from his role as president and vice chairman of the Charlotte Hornets to focus on health and family.

Hey i am Arif
I have a love for wildlife and in particular birds as they are so easy to get a close look at. I love to talk about birds, research them, go birding, birdwatch in my backyard and keep a few as pets. I wanted to share this love of birds with everyone so you can also appreciate these fascinating creatures.

I attend bird walks and talks whenever I get the chance so that I can learn more from the experts. There is always something new to learn or see with birding.

After studying a natural sciences degree I then entered the corporate world working for online travel companies. We now live in a forest and near a beach and I have not looked back since. You can usually find me out paddleboarding or kayaking or hiking through the forest, always with some binoculars!

I am here to help you find all the information you need about bird identification, birding tips, backyard bird watching, bird facts with guides, and free printables.
