The recipients, who each received EC$500, are K-Tonya Peters, of the Belair Government School; Karlson Jacobs, of the Biabou Methodist School; and Malakye Nero, of the Kingstown Preparatory School.

K-Tonya received the Edmay Bramble Wilson bursary, Karlson received the Miriam Ross Laidlow bursary, and Malakye received the Frances Haywood Joseph bursary.

The deadline for application was Monday, August 18, 2014.

The bursary initiative was spearheaded by Candice Laidlow – a Vincentian living in Canada – who is the granddaughter of the three women the bursaries are named after.

The bursaries were created to “continue the charitable legacy” of Frances Joseph, Miriam Laidlow and Edmay Wilson, who made “tremendous and continuous” demonstrations of service to their families and Vincentian society.

The bursaries will assist these students, and others in future, in continuing their education.
