The Ludwe Titus Bursary Fund
In 2016, a group of Old Preppies who had recently experienced the sudden and tragic loss of their good friend and classmate, Ludwe Titus (Espin 2001), attended a reunion at St Andrew’s Prep.
Over the 12 years that they attended St Andrew’s Prep and College, each of them developed their own bond with Ludwe (affectionately known as T-Bone) either as a class mate, a dorm mate, a team mate, or just a mate.
The decision was made to honour Ludwe in a meaningful way by starting a bursary fund to give back to St Andrew’s by helping children to attend College, and so the Ludwe Titus Fund was born.
The first Ludwe Titus Bursary was awarded to a Grade 8 learner in 2017. He has since matriculated from College. He flourished at College. He obtained good academic results, he was a good sportsman and a musician and he was an active member of Community Engagement. There is no doubt that he made the most of the opportunity awarded to him and that his time at College has certainly paved the way for a bright and successful future.
College currently supports approximately 30% of boys in one way or another – whether it be through a scholarship, a bursary or financial aid. These funds are derived from income from endowed funds specifically for the purpose of supporting scholarships and bursaries, and from individuals who choose to give back to our schools by supporting learners in need. However, the need is far greater than the available funding and we are so grateful for additional bursary support.
With your support, other boys like the first Ludwe Titus Bursary recipient can have the opportunity of a unique educational experience at St Andrew’s College. Following in the footsteps of numerous successful Old Andreans, they too will be well positioned to make a difference within our country, and to hopefully support other young boys in the future.
