In October 2017, the Bermuda Hospitality Institute (BHI) partnered with the friends of Tomasz Tabor for the fourth annual Tomasz Tabor Memorial Golf Tournament at the Belmont Hills Golf Course. Mr. Tabor was a well-known and beloved chef who tragically lost his life in a road traffic accident in February 2014.

The tournament raised $13,000 and the Bermuda Hospitality Institute established the: Tomasz Tabor Hospitality Scholarship.

Malika Cartwright Executive Director of BHI said, “The Hospitality Institute is committed to support those students seeking tourism-related careers.” She went on to say, “The future of hospitality and tourism lies with our youth, and the Hospitality Institute is seriously committed to doing its part to develop the future leaders of the tourism industry. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the friends of Mr. Tabor for taking the initiative to partner with as we work to develop the future leaders of the Bermuda tourism industry.”

Each student received $3000:

• Jaidah Bailey attends the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. Jaidah is completing her final year of her bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management, with a concentration in gaming.

• Lennae Edwards – is pursuing her Bachelor’s in Tourism Management at St. Mary’s University

• Imani Wedderburn – Pursuing a Bachelor’s in Hotel Management at Johnson & Wales in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The remaining $4000 will be put towards BHI programs such as Jr. Chef.
