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 http://adventuresofajamaicanrotaryscholar.blogspot.com/
