THIRTY-SIX students of educational institutions including high schools, colleges and universities, have been presented with scholarships worth $4.2 million, by the Tryall Scholarship Fund.


The presentation ceremony was held at the Tryall Great House in Sandy Bay, Hanover on August 8.


The awardees were chosen based on their ability to achieve and maintain good grades. This year's recipient of the Louise Cullman Scholarship is Ricardo Graham, a member of staff at the hotel. This scholarship was named in memory of the late member of staff.


Addressing recipients at the ceremony, 2011 winner of Louise Cullman Scholarship Anthia Williamson encouraged them to always focus on their vision in order to conquer failure and eventually reap success.


"I implore you awardees to take your studies very seriously and use this great opportunity not only to advance yourselves to achieve your academic goals, but to be role models to yourselves and others. With thixs investment that has been made in us, it is only fair that we repay it in abundance by helping to create a better society and a better world," she said.


Williamson said that her decision to continue her studies was not easy, but she was deeply humbled and proud of her accomplishments.


"Over the past two years, my decision to go back to school has reinforced in me the fact that knowledge is power and education has the key to liberate the mind. I therefore challenge you, every single one of you, to give back to this initiative in whatever way you can," she urged.


The Tryall Scholarship Fund has been developed and supported by management and staff of the hotel and is aimed at improving the lives of children and families in the parish of Hanover, through its education, health and welfare projects.
