Sponsorships Awarded To 17 College Students

February 17, 2015

Seventeen Bermuda College students were financially supported in their tertiary studies by fifteen generous community benefactors who recently donated $20,000 during the College’s In-House Awards ceremony.

Bermuda College President Dr. Duranda Greene noted that sponsorship went a “long way” for students during the current economic climate, especially in the purchase of costly text books.

Dr. Greene said, “No matter how large or small the gift, we are appreciative of every sponsor who invests in our students and who has continued to support them over the years.”

    Thanks to the generous community benefactors, after the O.B.A/ubp slashed funds on education for the sail boat race.

      There was some overall reduction, but the numbers of recipients were increased under the OBA…more benefit not just the chosen few.

      The sail boat race, pays for itself and some. Those saling folks are spending money in the Bermuda economy already and will continue to do so through 2017.

      @Mockingjay , please tell us exactly why you think funds were slashed? Maybe it was because of how your precious PLP spent and wasted money on Procative and Berkely, 20/20 Cricket, $4M each for Football and Cricket, Port Royal GC, Beyonce Concert, PGA Golf, Quigar deal, Faith Based Tourism, Washington Office, Travel, Caracom Membership, Bermuda Emissions, TCD, Sandys 360, and the list goes on.

      If we just knew where the $800,000,000 is public funds went? Care to reply Mockingjay? Think of how many children we could educate if we could just find it

    Congratulations students!
    Please do not detract from student achievement by making this a political football. This is nothing to do with government awards, companies and individuals have sponsored scholarships and awards for many, many years, such as Viking Foods, Butterfield and Vallis and Diane Lines. The awards weren’t always managed or invested well by BC, take the Corange Science Award for starters. In addition, there should be a tax payers award as they contribute in excess of 20 million dollars every year to this institution. Money well spent? Well that is for the taxpayer to decide.
