Prestigious scholarships up for grabs

Bermudian students studying for careers in the medical field will find out whether they have been awarded a prestigious scholarship when the Bermuda Health Foundation host their 14th Annual Salute to Service Awards luncheon next Friday (June 17).

The Foundation raises funds every year to assist local students and this year some 65 of them have submitted applications for the scholarships.

To date the Foundation has presented 39 scholarships totaling almost $400,000.

In addition to the scholarship awards, the Foundation will honour John Wight, president and CEO of BF&M Insurance Group with their Annual Salute to Service Award for his contribution to the insurance industry and the Bermuda community generally.

Mr. Wight is also the president of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce.

“Because of his contribution to the business community in Bermuda, the Foundation is expecting a sell-out audience at this year's luncheon,” said a Foundation spokesperson.

Also on the agenda is the popular Foundation Charity Golf Tournament which has attracted some of Bermuda's top golfers as well as international players.

This year's prizes for the top three teams include travel vouchers in the amount of $500 for each winning team member, four golf watches for the second placed team, and golf bags for the team finishing third. Last year's winners, the Belco team, will defend their title.

Tickets for the luncheon are available at $125.00 each and the entry fee for the golf tournament is $150 per person or $600 per team. Those interested in either event should contact LaVerne Furbert at lavernef@northrock.bm or at 335-8232.
