About the Donor

The late Mr Henry HL Kwee was born in Yuxi Town, Fuqing City, Fujian Province, China, and emigrated to Singapore in 1958. He set up Pontiac Shirts Private Limited which operated out of a small factory on Little Road. During Confrontasi, Mr Kwee decided to start a new business building small but high-quality developments. Thus, the Pontiac Land Group was founded in 1961. 

The Scholarship was set up in 2018 in loving memory of Mr Kwee, who passed away in 1988. The Henry HL Kwee Scholarship, previously known as The Abang Scholarship, is made possible by Mr Kwee Liong Keng, Mr Henry Kwee’s eldest son who would like to continue his father's legacy of nurturing the next generation of lifelong learners.
