Congratulations to BC students Bathsheba Jones and Khaleel Daley (pictured) who are this year’s recipients of the ILS $10,000 scholarship award, offered in conjunction with the Bermuda Insurance Institute (BII) as part of the Career Pathways programme.

The education initiative comprises four stages: an overview seminar for students, the Bermuda Insurance Institute’s induction programme, courses toward the associate in general insurance designation, and work shadow opportunities.

Bathsheba is currently in the Associate Degree Business Degree programme, while Khaleel is a dual enrolment student from The Berkeley Institute, studying actuarial science.

Ms Jones said she was thankful for the opportunity.” I feel (this has) put me on a path to achieve my goals, and to better myself in cybersecurity and insurance (studies),” she said. She will continue studying here for another year, and is pursuing the Associate in General Insurance (AINS) designation before attending George State in 2019.

Mr. Daly also expressed gratitude. “I’m able to gain the AINS designation, which aligns with my prospective career goal,” he said. After graduation in May, he will be attending Georgia State University.
