THE STORY:

Team King Ham is honoring my late, great father, Hamlin Jennings. Hamlin passed in early July from aggressive kidney cancer that metastasized to his heart. It was a short, but very aggressive battle that ended peacefully, but left a huge loss in my family’s lives and mine. In life, Hamlin was a great and tireless advocator of education. He was a tenured professor at Northwestern University and finished his career at MIT as the head of a ground-breaking department, the Concrete Sustainability Hub. One of the incredible things that came to my attention after my Dad's passing is how many students he touched, how many careers he shaped, and how many students he encouraged to overcome adversity throughout his long teaching career. He was brilliant, and highly respected by many and many became great scientists because of him. I am one of those people... When applying to college and grad school he was the person from whom I sought advise. Anytime I had a problem my Dad would happily share a story from his journey to success. That, in turn, would motivate me to "Keep Going" . After my Dad was diagnosed with cancer, he helped students and colleagues throughout his treatment up until the very end of his life. Therefore, this project and tournament motivates me for several reasons to contribute in his honor. First and foremost, my dad believed in education. Education for all and that working hard would reap great rewards. Secondly, my Dad's battle and eventual loss with cancer was a first hand experience on how much of a human (and their families) this disease can take. Any student who is brave enough to undertake both education and cancer deserves the support from the community around them. Please join Team King Ham and me in raising as much as we can for such a great cause!
