Every Rotarian in the room was proud to be one, after thanksgiving speeches were made by 2 Rotary scholarship awardees at the Rotary Club of Montego Bay's weekly luncheon meeting on Tuesday 7 September.

Co-ordinated by Past President and Rotary International specially assigned host counsellor to scholarship awardees Bhagwan Chuganey, the scholarship duo visited the luncheon meeting under his fatherly wing. 

Young Jenoy Barnett, a tenth grader at Cornwall College who has received the Maxwell Southby Memorial Scholarship for the 3rd year in a row gave a heart-rending speech about family and school life and what the scholarship meant to him.

Then bubbly Shaniek Parks, recipient of the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship worth over J$ 2 million took the stand and eloquently spoke about her journey ahead to Leeds University in England  where she will be reading for a Masters in International Communications. She leaves this Saturday with every Rotarian behind her promising to read the blog on her adventures at

Wishing Shaniek all the very best as she takes on this new and exciting challenge!

And I'm hoping Jenoy stays focused on the important things.

May God bless them both as they pursue their dreams.
