The Hamilton Parish Council Scholarship Committee has awarded scholarships to Maya Palacio and Kyra Beach.

A spokesperson said, “Following scholarship interviews last month, the Hamilton Parish Council Scholarship Committee was delighted to be able to offer scholarships to two deserving college students.

“All applicants for the scholarship must live in the parish. They are graded on academic achievement, financial need, community service, extra-curricular activities, etc. The caliber of those interviewed was very high, with Maya Palacio and Kyra Beach eventually being selected.

“One of the requirements of the scholarship is that successful students give back to the community. Both Maya and Kyra impressed the committee with their ideas to benefit the parish.

“A graduate of CedarBridge Academy, Maya is studying Journalism at University of Kings College, in London. She is a well-rounded and talented student who has worked hard over the summer and she impressed the committee with her focus and determination.

“The committee was similarly impressed with Kyra, who graduated from Saltus and is currently studying International Events Management at University of Brighton. They were very interested to learn of her experience at Disney World as a cultural exchange student.

“Both students will graduate next year and the Council wishes them every success in their endeavours.”
