Maryland District AAU Member Passes Away – Beverley Vincent

Written by Administrator

BEVERLY SMALLIt is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you of the death of our colleague teammate and AAU friend, BEVERLEY VINCENT, who passed away on June 9, 2023.

Beverley joined the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) in Year 2007. She was resolute and committed AAU member in the Maryland District and she fully served, supported, and promoted our District and the National AAU organization in various capacities:

Positions held for the Maryland District AAU
Executive Officer and Registrar
Boys Basketball Commissioner
Boys Basketball Assistant Commissioner
Finance Committee Member
District Election Chairperson
Tournament Assistant for 7U & 8U Boys Basketball World Championship
Swimming and Diving Sport Director Assistant
Banquet Committee Member


Positions held for the National AAU
National AAU Girls Basketball Commissioner
National Registration Committee

Beverley trained as a Boys Basketball Tournament Assistant Commissioner under Maryland AAU District Governor and Boys Basketball Sport Director, Ben DuBose and Past 1st Lieutenant Governor, McCarroll Nole. Also, Beverley served faithfully on the Maryland District AAU Banquet Committee, overseeing the coordination for floor decorum and decorations.

She attended the National Conventions and the Leadership Conferences. Beverley always had a way of making every trip fun and was always the life of the party.

While serving as an AAU member, Beverley received several awards that she was well deserving of:
2012 President's National Leadership Award
Maryland District AAU Volunteer of the Year Award
Maryland District AAU Governor’s Award

The last award she received was named after someone close to her, her god-brother, Ben DuBose. This award is named the Benjamin F. DuBose, Jr. – Overcoming Adversity Award.

In 2019, Beverley’s health caused her duties with the Maryland District AAU to be limited. However, she continued to serve even while she was hospitalized. Throughout her recovery and the COVID-19 pandemic, her dedication to church, community and AAU was uncompromising, as she attended virtual meetings and continued to volunteer for events when her health permitted her to do so.

Beverley always made known her love for her son, Roderick (Roddy) and her family, as well as her Pastor, Dr. Gregory B. Perkins and her church family, the Historic Saint Paul Community Baptist Church, in Baltimore, Maryland, where she served as the Executive Administrator. She was also known to quickly correct you if you ever called her an Assistant or Secretary.

Beverley will be sorely missed by her AAU family, but we will always fondly remember her warm, friendly smile, her kindness, generosity, and her dedication to helping whomever and wherever she could.

Her passing has deeply affected us all, as she was a truly remarkable person. May she rest in peace, knowing she lived a good life and fought the good fight. We take comfort in knowing that our heavenly Father has welcomed her home with open arms, and great is her reward.
