Ahmad Akim Hart Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund

Established 1998

Scheketa Hart-Burns & Ahmad Akim Hart

Scheketa Hart-Burns & Ahmad Akim Hart

Ahmad Akim Hart (1981-1998) was born in Aurora, Illinois. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and his doctors predicted a life expectancy of two years.

His mother, Aurora Alderman Scheketa Hart-Burns, dedicated her life to caring for her son at home. Through her love and devotion, Ahmad learned how to communicate with a computer and cue cards.

Ahmad attended Keeler, Goodwin and Hope Wall Schools.  At the time of his passing at the age of seventeen, his family and friends created a scholarship fund to honor his life.

The fund, which was created in 1998, became an endowment in 2008.
