When we graduated from the College of West Africa (CWA) we did not know where the future will lead us. Life has been different for each member, but we have all arrived at a point where we can support the next generation to take their own path.
The ROW Academic Scholarship is our means to support the next generation and it will not be possible without the generous donations of ordinary folks that decide to help in small, but significant ways.
On behalf of the ROW Executive Team and our scholarship recipients, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all our donors. Your donations will bless many families and allow students to focus on their studies. Thanks again for your generosity.
Dr. Felix P. Gbee

In Memory of
Faith Edna Frances Moulton
The late Faith Edna Frances Moulton was born on March 24, 1976, unto the union of Evelyn Brown Moulton and J.K. Levee Moulton in Monrovia, Liberia, and was called to rest from her labour on September 5, 2022.
Faith began her primary schooling at the St. Theresa Convent. Faith continued her primary education at the J. J. Roberts United Methodist School, where she completed her Junior High Studies. After her junior years, Faith transferred to the College of West Africa where she served as a Student Class President (1993-1994), and Vice President of the Student Council Government (1992-1993). Faith graduated high school in 1994 as the Race of Wisdom (ROW) Class Valedictorian. Faith later went on to earn a Bachelors of Science degree, majoring in Computer Science, from the University of Georgia (UGA), and a Masters of Science (MS) degree in Computer Science from Perdue University.
Faith was a beautiful soul. She was always kind, and although soft spoken, could command the attention of others while being very persuasive. Faith never lost a debate. You could always count on Faith to be positive and see the good in every situation.
As our class Valedictorian, Faith was smart, thoughtful, creative and always challenging others to reach their full potential. Although perceived as quiet by most, Faith wouldn’t hesitate to break out in song or dance when hanging with her friends. She had a charming smile and an infectious laugh that her friends enjoyed. She loved to have fun! Faith was a safe space for many and truly a breath of fresh air. She had a positive impact on everyone she came into contact with. From teachers, to the faculty and staff, and especially her classmates. To know Faith, was to love her. To say that she’ll be missed is an understatement.
Rest is Peace, Faith. You'll forever remain in our hearts.

In Memory of
Quillens E.J. Stevens, Sr.
The late Quillens E. J. Stevens, Sr., the second of six children, was born Aaron James Stevens to the union of Melford Charles Stevens and Rachel Dennis Stevens, in Liberia, West Africa. As a young Christian growing up, Aaron quickly learned that “The fear of the LORD was the beginning of wisdom.” He later embraced the Catholic Church and remained a faithful member until his death in 1994.
Quillens E.J. Stevens Sr. received his early education from Freetown, Sierra Leone and Saint Patrick’s High School in Monrovia, Liberia. He later obtained his higher education from the University of Liberia and the United States of America.
The late Quillens E. J. Stevens, Sr., worked at the Bank of Liberia for many years, rising to various leadership positions until he retired in the early 1980s. A father, entrepreneur, banker and philanthropist, the late Quillens E. J. Stevens, Sr., was very passionate about the welfare of others. He anticipated the needs of many individuals from various walks of life and assisted financially with tuitions, text books and transportation costs for many who had a drive to succeed through learning. He also provided meals and financial assistance to the indigent, because he believed, “No one needs to be hungry and without.”
Our father, Quillens E. J. Stevens, Sr., sought every opportunity to speak positively in encouraging his children, family, friends and associates, to constantly apply their time wisely. For him, education was paramount in order to blossom in an unfair and cruel world.
The late Quillens E. J. Stevens, Sr., was an exceptional provider and an attentive and dedicated father to his children, nieces, nephews and many others who sought his fatherly wisdom. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

In Memory of
Albert Q.W. Kemoh
CWA Class of 1964
Albert Q. W. Kemoh was a staunch Seventh-Day Adventist Christian and a devoted Fox of the College of West Africa.
After graduating from the eighth grade at Konola Academy in Margibi County, Liberia, Albert was left to fend for himself. His quest for learning led him to relocate to Monrovia where he met some friends who became his family, and encouraged him to continue his high school education. He began working to support himself through school. Albert was a member of the graduating class of 1964 at the College of West Africa and 1970 at the University of Liberia.
After graduating from CWA, Albert remained dedicated to the development and growth of his alma mater. He was a member of the PTA and the Alumni Association; where he once served as President.
Albert’s greatest passion outside of his family was reading and education. He was a proud owner of his very own book store in the 1980’s in addition to working a full time job. After the destruction of the bookstore during the Civil War, he continued to collect books to share with others, and even built a library at home for his family.
Albert was a loving husband and father who supported his family and friends in every way he could. He will be dearly missed but his passion for assisting others through their education still lives on through his children.
