Government backbencher Dale Butler and scientist Malcolm Brock were inducted into the Company of Honorary Fellows of Bermuda College.

Around 50 guests, including Education Minister Dame Jennifer Smith, attended the ceremony at Coco Reef on Saturday.

Mr Butler, an historian and former school principal, is as known for his books as his work in politics. The MP for Warwick North East and Government backbencher has also served as the Minister of Culture and Social Rehabilitation.

Dr Brock meanwhile is known for his contribution to the sciences. Working with a team of researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Dr Brock spent years identifying DNA markers that highlighted cancer cells likely to return.

He earned his undergraduate degree at Princeton, a Rhodes Scholarship for postgraduate oriental studies at Oxford University and a medical degree from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore.

His father, Mansfield (Jimmy) Brock, the first CEO of Bermuda College, accepted the honour on Dr Brock’s behalf.

The awards were presented by outgoing chairman of the Honorary Fellows, Lt Col Michael Darling. He will be succeeded by former Senator Walwyn Hughes.
