Kiara Virgil-Wainwright, a recent graduate of the Berkeley Institute and Bermuda College dual enrolment programme, was awarded the Bermuda College Education Award, which will go towards her studies at Georgia State University.
Also honoured was Madison Quig, a Bermuda High School graduate, who received the Robert Clements Scholarship for her freshman year at Stanford University in California.
Samantha Froud, the chief administration officer at Chubb Bermuda Operations and a member of the Bermuda College Education Award selection committee, said: “I continue to be impressed with the talent and potential of the candidates we receive from Bermuda College.
“Kiara demonstrated a strong commitment and passion for learning, and giving back to the community. We are pleased to recognise and help support Kiara to achieve her goals.”
Lori Dunstan, chairwoman of the Chubb Charitable Foundation, added: “Madison is truly an outstanding student with a passion for learning.
“The committee was extremely impressed with her academic and community accomplishments. We are proud to name her as our 2019 recipient.
“We look forward to having Madison join the world-class family of Robert Clements scholars”
The Bermuda College Education Award provides $15,000 a year for two years to the successful Bermuda College graduate, while the Robert Clements Scholarship covers tuition and fees, room and board, books and air transportation for up to four years.
