On April 6th, the Carson Scholars Fund, founded by Dr. Ben Carson and which “awards students who have embraced high levels of academic excellence and community service with $1,000 college scholarships,” publicly recognized three other individuals who have made a mark in their chosen fields, including Kirk Cameron.
In addition to Christian television star Cameron, the fund honored Aubrey Chernick, a technology and media powerhouse and philanthropist, and Baltimore Orioles legendary third baseman Brooks Robinson.
Cameron was given the Power of Excellence Award “for demonstrating excellence in his career and becoming a positive role model.”
Chernick was honored with the Leadership Award for “positively impacting society with innovative ideas, accomplishments, and philosophies.”
The Sonya Award was given to Robinson, recognizing him as an individual who “demonstrates the drive, determination, commitment and perseverance of Dr. Carson’s mother, Sonya.”
