The Collegiate Life Investment Foundation (CLIF) is pleased to announce the inaugural academic year of the Clifton B. Gibbs Scholarship Program.

CLIF is a non-profit organization established to educate the high school and collegiate population about the dangers of distracted driving. In addition, CLIF promotes higher education among African American young men and women through a book scholarship at Christian Brothers University. In memory of Clifton B. Gibbs, a 23-year-old CBU alumnus who was killed by a distracted driver, the organization encourages academic excellence, community involvement, and a sincere lifelong commitment to refrain from any use of mobile phones while driving.

Clifton graduated from Central High School in 2006 with honors. He furthered his education at Christian Brothers University, where he received his BSBA in Marketing in 2011. While at CBU, he was a dedicated member of the collegiate tennis team and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated.

“Clifton loved CBU,” says CLIF founder Larissa Redmond (’11). “Although he was a big jokester, there were two things he never played about — his school and his fraternity.  In his four years at CBUm he served his school, his classmates, and his community, with a smile on his face and the Bucs in his heart.”
