RenRe scholarship for Robinson Perinchief

A former Berkeley Institute pupil has won a top scholarship from reinsurance firm RenaissanceRe.

Ryan Robinson Perinchief will get $25,000 a year for up to four years to assist him with his studies at Durham University in the UK.

Mr Robinson Perinchief said: “It's an honour to be recognised by RennaissanceRe and I look forward to continuing my studies in the UK.

“I've learned a lot from my experience as a student and from being involved in community organisations and activities locally and abroad and I feel prepared for, and excited by, the challenges and opportunities ahead.”

Mr Robinson Perinchief, a triple honours graduate of Berkeley, is a former head boy of the school and board member of the student council.

He was also youth Premier in the Island's Youth Parliament and won several leadership honours for his community work, including with the St John Ambulance Brigade.

Mr Robinson Perinchief, from Pembroke, recently returned from Brazil, where he took part in Rotary Club's youth exchange programme.

RenaissanceRe CEO Kevin O'Donnell said: “Ryan embodies many qualities that our team admires and has the same commitment to achieving the highest levels of service and performance.

“We are proud to be able to support Ryan's future efforts and look forward to following his progress, both at Durham University and as he makes future contributions to our Island.”

The RenaissanceRe scholarship scheme has been running for nine years and winners are selected by a committee drawn from across the company based on academic excellence, leadership and community service.
