We are excited to announce we are able to purchase a second touchless water cooler because of the generosity of one of our Bennett’s Mill Middle School families, Mr. Delgado Whitelocke & Ashley McKey
Delgado Whitelocke is a family man first and has always stressed the importance of education to his six children. He was born in St. Andrews, Jamaica and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. While in high school he enjoyed playing football and even went on to play football, as a wide receiver, at the college level. He attended college at Wartburg College and Savannah State University where he studied bio chemistry. After college he worked several jobs and decided he wanted to chase his own dream of becoming an entrepreneur. After much hard work and dedication he started his trucking business, Dream Chaser Trucking, LLC, in 2009. As his company name suggest, he is always willing to help young boys and girls chase their dreams.
