Kahlin was one of the closest people I’ve ever met through basketball. We first met my 8th grade year at Morrow Middle in a basketball game. Adamson versus Morrow, which ended with them walking away with the win. Only because I was the only threat on my team. But, nevertheless that was the first time I met Kahlin. Going into my 9th grade summer we began to workout with each other more at Morrow High. We began come really close because we were the best freshman in the entire school. We were the only freshman starting on JV and coming off the bench in varsity games. We would go to school, workout together, then chill at my house until his pops came to get him. We also played AAU together through the summer. Kahlin was my only competition and partner in the gym. Our competitive mindsets grew us closer than brothers and I miss him more and more everyday. Every time I step in the gym I feel like he’s somewhere critiquing my every move and pushing me to go harder. And forever will I do it for Kahlin.June 10, 2017 at 8:34 pm #1388dbrown17Participant
Joining the DIFK foundation was another blessing that god put in my life and it also was another family that took me in as their own. I didn’t know Khalin personally like some of my other brothers (Marcus Lovelace, Beasley, Stan and etc.) but all the stories I heard and also doing community service and helping/repping the DIFK foundation made me realized that we lost a wonderful great amazing young vibrant young man that has so much joy and heart and love for others. Being apart of the DIFK foundation is something I will stick with in my heart while I get order and wiser. He will always be here in our mind and our heartsJune 15, 2017 at 1:21 am #1390Zavant1Participant
The DIFK foundation is more than something to get involved with. The foundation is an organization that instills the true meaning of what it means to educate, inspire, and to give back. Since I’ve been participating with the foundation it’s been easy for me to succeed in school and in general life. Knowing Kahlin meant a lot to me because he showed me that it was okay to be loving and caring to those around me and to those around me who I don’t know. That made me realize that it’s much to be done in my community, which is why joined DECA & FBLA to learn about what I can do in my community. Personally I feel as if Kahlin and The foundation has made me a better man. With receiving this scholarship I feel as if I have made Kahlin proud. This truly means that I have done it for kahlin. I appreciate this opportunity.
