Hard work leads to scholarships
A grant from the Lyceum Trust has provided funding that has allowed the Hamilton Parish Council scholarship committee to make three awards to students.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year's applicants were interviewed remotely via Zoom teleconferencing.
All applicants had to be residents of the parish, have completed their freshman year, and submitted ideas about ways to give back to the parish.
The committee said it had enjoyed “virtually meeting” all the applicants and learning of their goals for the future.
The three candidates who most impressed with their drive and determination, and were subsequently awarded a scholarship, were Ritica Belboda, Giovanni Hollis and Sage Jackson. Ms Belboda is a Cedarbridge graduate studying health sciences with a focus on speech correction hearing sciences at Kean University.
Ms Jackson is a graduate of the dual enrolment scheme at Berkeley / Bermuda College is studying law and society at York University.
Mr Hollis, who graduated from Warwick Academy, is studying bioengineering at Northeastern University.
