“After reviewing this year’s applications, our committee selected these two young men as 2019 recipients as they both have demonstrated character traits we believe will make them excellent overseas representatives of Bermuda and our youth,” said Jereme Ramsay, Board President and Executive Director.

“On behalf of the Board, I would like to congratulate both Aleston and Seon and wish them well as they embark on their upcoming overseas experiences.”

Armstrong is set to participate in a 10-week July expedition to Nepal with Raleigh Bermuda, while Tatem will travel to Brazil as an International Rotary Youth Exchange student in August.

“Our Board hopes the result of their experiences produces a positive domino effect, unlocking their potential and leading to more opportunities” said Mr Ramsay.

“We hope it gives them tools to succeed in any future endeavours they choose to embark on, and to enrich other people’s lives in whatever capacity they can.”
