Food for the Poor executive director Angel Aloma and aeronautical engineer Nigel Sutton will this week become the latest Campion College alumni to be inducted into the institution's Hall of Fame. 

They will be inducted at a special Hall of Fame Dinner at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel on Friday, January 26, joining alumni such as economist Dr Damien King and businessman Joseph Matalon as part of the esteemed group.

Prior to his role at Food for the Poor, Aloma was an educator shaping the minds and values of his many students, a journey that began as a teacher at Campion College after university.

“After my first year in Business Administration, I realised that it definitely wasn’t for me. I loved my five years at Campion as a student, so when I thought of teaching as a career, Campion was the obvious choice,” Aloma said.

At Food for the Poor, Aloma oversees fundraising and communications for the organisation, while encouraging innovation and cultivating donor relationships.

Under his leadership, the organisation has grown to be one of the largest and most successful aid agencies in the Caribbean and Latin America, with US billions of dollars going towards the most affected countries to help some of the world’s most vulnerable people and communities.

Sutton is a vice president at Orbital ATK, a US-based multibillion dollar defence and aerospace company. Prior to his career in the private sector, he served in the US Navy where he rose to the rank of Commander and was also a NASA Astronaut Candidate finalist and US Navy Test Pilot School graduate.

“I was very surprised and shocked upon hearing the news,” Sutton said. “This is indeed an honor and I am without words to say how happy I am to be part of this esteemed group. I am very thankful to the Campion College Alumni Association and to my peers who have given me this honor. I am truly humbled by this selection to the Hall of Fame.”

The Hall of Fame dinner functions as a fundraiser to provide scholarships for qualified Campion College students in need of assistance. Sponsored by Proven Investment Limited, the annual event attracts a large number of alumni and friends of Campion. Tickets cost $10,000 and are on sale at all Cannonball Cafe locations. Corporate tables can be reserved by contacting the Campion College Alumni Association at 876 412-7475.
