Pacers hand scholarship funding to four athletes
The Bermuda Pacers Track Club continues to support their young athletes in education with $3,750 in total donated to four female athletes as part of their annual scholarships awards, today.
“Firstly we would like to acknowledge our sponsors AIG and Skyport Ltd for continuous support of our scholarship programme,” Wayne Raynor, the Bermuda Pacers president, said during the presentation at the Flora Duffy National Stadium.
“This year we are honoured to be able to award scholarships to four young ladies who not only excel on the track but in the classroom.”
The four recipients of the scholarships are, Koa Goodchild, who is attending Howard University in Washington DC, Nhoaa Powell, who is attending Bermuda College, Makayla Tucker, who is attending Syracuse University in New York, and Miniya Wainwright, who is attending Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia.
The three overseas students will each receive $1,000 while Powell will receive $750 towards her education at Bermuda College.
Tucker competes in the 200 metres, 400 metres, long jump and triple jump; Powell in the 100 and 200 metres; Goodchild in the 400 and 800 metres and Wainwright in the high jump and long jump. Goodchild is also a member of the national football team.
•Tomorrow’s scheduled track meet at the National Sports Centre, which would have been the first of 2022, has been put back to next Saturday, starting at noon. A two-day meet is scheduled for the weekend of January 29, 30 to give youngsters opportunities to reach Carifta Games qualifying standards.
