DJ Henry Dream Fund.
DJ Henry Day at Oliver Ames High School - Easton, Massachusetts
Oliver Ames High School alums, Claudia Ferrara and Emma Joyce, along with Raising Multicultural Kids continue to honor the legacy of alum, DJ Henry for the third annual DJ Henry Day on October 27th.

Ms. Ferrara says, "I was close to DJ’s story and the impact DJ had on everyone around him. As a friend, community member, and Oliver Ames (OA) alumni. I felt a need for the impact and legacy to be acknowledged and celebrated at OA. "

DJ Henry Day intends to uplift DJ and his legacy while encouraging students to have purposeful and productive conversations around social justice and the mark they will make on the world.

DJ Henry Dream Fund scholar Quincy Pickett: A Success Story on the Brink of a Breakout
We are so excited and proud of DJ Henry Dream Fund scholar, Quincy Pickett. Quincy was recently featured in Boston Man magazine.

Quincy says, “Honestly, the DJ Henry Dream Fund changed my life, because that is when I really fell in love with football,” he says. “Football basically changed the direction in how I lived my life, my focus, and what I needed to do to play football at a high level in the future. So that meant going to a great school, focusing on my grades, and doing things for the community.”

Pace University, where DJ played football hosted the third annual Social Justice Week across its three campuses – in lower Manhattan, Pleasantville, and White Plains. The featured events adhere to values of equity and justice while engaging the campus community in learning activities and dialogue centered on the issues of social justice.

This year, the football program also retired DJ's #12 jersey in a special ceremony. We are grateful for the work that the school is dedicated to doing and for this generous retirement of his jersey.
