Wight to be honoured by BHF

John Wight, president and CEO of the BF&M Insurance Group, will be honoured at this year's Salute to Service Award presentations at the Bermuda Health Foundation's 14th Luncheon on June 17.

The Salute to Service Award is presented yearly to a member of the community who has shown “dedication and commitment to moving Bermuda forward through their professional and/or personal life”.

Mr Wight is also the president of the Chamber of Commerce, a council member of the Bermuda Stock Exchange and a member of the Ministry of Finance Insurance Advisory Committee. He is a past chairman of CPA Bermuda and a past president of the Bermuda Insurance Institute. Additionally, he is director for several companies.

Last year the BHF honoured Patrick Tannock, president of XL Insurance (Bermuda) Limited.

Over the past 14 years, the Foundation has recognised other outstanding Bermudians such as Reginald Burrows, the first honouree, Clarence James, Malcolm Brock, Paul Cox, the former Premier, and Brenella Williams.

During this year's luncheon, scholarships will be presented to students who will receive funding towards their studies in the medical field.

Last year, the BHF gave scholarships to Shi-Vaughn Lee and Chioma Nwasaki Both, both of whom are studying medicine. Ms Lee, who has maintained at 4.0 grade point, is studying at Howard University, and Ms Both is enrolled at Dalhousie University.

In addition to the luncheon, the BHF also sponsors a charity golf tournament on the following Saturday at Belmont Hills Golf Club.

The Bermuda Health Foundation was founded by brothers Philip Butterfield, Vincent Hollinsid, Ewart Brown and the late Murray Brown. Recently Charles Brown joined the board of directors.

Persons interested in purchasing tickets for the luncheon at $125 each or participating in the golf tournament at $150 per person should contact LaVerne Furbert at 335-8232 or by e-mail at lavernef@northrock.bm.
