New scholarship at Reading Clinic

An annual scholarship in the name of Mansfield “Jim” Brock has been established at the Reading Clinic.

The Trustees of the Reading Clinic Foundation donated $8,640 per annum to help with tuition costs for families who require financial assistance.

Mr Brock, a trustee of the clinic, was a physics and mathematics teacher at Berkeley Institute for ten years, headteacher of Sandys Secondary School for nine years and the founding CEO of Bermuda College.

He also held roles including permanent secretary of education, financial secretary, chairman of the Bermuda Monetary Authority, general manager of Butterfield Bank and chief administration officer of Colonial Group International.

Mr Brock said: “I am proud of my association with the Reading Clinic, an organisation which plays such an important role in helping our young with dyslexia and other learning differences so that they may fulfil their potential.”

Glenn Faries, CEO of the Reading Clinic, said: “We are extremely grateful to the trustees for donating this scholarship and their continued support of the Reading Clinic.

“It is a very welcome birthday present commencing in this, our 50th anniversary year, and fitting that it will honour Mr Brock who has contributed significantly to education in Bermuda and who is a committed supporter of the Reading Clinic.

“We strive to make sure that every child in Bermuda who needs our help has access to our services regardless of their financial situation. The Mansfield Brock Scholarship will help us provide support for those students in financial need.”
