Union helps students with cash awards
The Bermuda Public Service Union has awarded students a total of $30,000 in an effort to support the further education of Bermudians.
The 29th BPSU Annual Education Awards Ceremony recognised the hard work of 12 recipients with awards.
The union awarded $3,500 grants to six students enrolled overseas, including Justus Anderson, Jathniel O’Mara, Kenshensae Simons, Toschella Trott, Zene Wade and Mikayla Wilson.
Another six $1,500 awards were granted to students who are set to continue their education locally or online, including Kinika Bowers, Tricha Cross-Pitcher, Tiffany Durham, Sloane Johnson, Davondra Sealey and Najah-Rae Watson.
Armell Thomas, BPSU president, highlighted the importance of supporting education, and urged the recipients to find ways to give back to others in the community.
Kevin Grant, BPSU Education Committee Chair, said the union has granted more than $710,000 in grants to students since 1993.
The BPSU congratulated all of the recipients and wished them success in their future.
