Greener pastures beckon for award winners

The Garden Club of Bermuda has announced four new recipients for its 2015 scholarship.

They are Kidane Callender, Hutson Carter II, Jayson Jackson and Anna Terceira. Three of the awardees, Mr Callender, Mr Carter II and Ms Terceira were previous winners.

Mr Jackson is a first-time awardee and he will return to Guelph University, Canada, to complete an associate diploma in turf grass management before returning to Bermuda next year to continue his career at a golf course.

Mr Carter II is pursuing a career as a golf course superintendent and is due to complete his diploma at Florida Gateway College, US, in December.

Ms Terceira is midway through studying for registration as a horticultural therapist certified by the Horticultural Therapy Institute, US, offered through courses at Colorado State University, US, together with more than 480 hours of internship. Ms Terceira is known for her achievements in this field at Windreach.

Mr Callender is a graduate of CedarBridge Academy and is preparing for his second year at Warwickshire College, UK, for a diploma in horticulture and landscaping. He developed his interest in horticulture as a day-release student in a programme run by Roger Parris who is in charge of The Arboretum for the Parks Department.

The Garden Club has been awarding scholarships for horticulture since 1957 and has awarded scholarships to 117 students travelling abroad to study.

The club's next major fundraising event will be its open house and gardens event at “Norwood” on Pitts Bay Road, Pembroke, on November 21.
