Bishop’s College Student Wins Int’l Scholarship Award

Bishop’s College Student  Wins Int’l Scholarship Award

A student of Bishop’s College has won this year’s America-based, Grenada–Houston Association Scholarship award.

Last week Wednesday, Valerie Richards and Andrew Augustine of the Human Resource Department of the scholarship desk presented Talia Frank of Bishop’s College with her prize.

Mr Augustine said that they were happy to see a student of Carriacou emerge as the winner this year.

Andrew added that the Houston Scholarship is the only one currently available, which comes through the scholarship desk and targets secondary school students.  This he says is because of the association’s ability in recent years to raise more monies for the program.

Mr Augustine pointed out that following last year’s program they decided to send out a challenge to get more schools and students involved in the program.

“This year we are happy to have a student from Bishop’s College as the winner and she has now received US$500.00 to spend in whatever way she pleases to enhance her education”, said Mr Augustine.

Ms Frank accompanied by her mother, Golie Deslisle, said that she is happy to have emerged victorious adding that her essay, which was tough and testing, focused on the challenge her mother had in raising her siblings from a young and tender age.

Principal of Bishop’s College, Rholda Quamina, in congratulating Ms Frank, noted that she hopes this success would serve as an inspiration to other students to get involved in the program.
