Campbells is pleased to announce that Kira March and Zachary Powery have been awarded our undergraduate scholarships for 2015. “Kira and Zachary both exemplify the qualities we look for when considering scholarship applications and we are proud to support these bright and promising students with their educational endeavours,” says Nicole D’Heer Watson, Marketing Manager.
Kira is entering her first year at St Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia and will pursue a Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics. Kira has a passion for athletics and the healthy sustainability of the human body. Upon her return she hopes to use her degree to work with athletes representing the Cayman Islands.
Zachary Powery is a third time Campbells scholarship recipient and is entering his fourth year at Edinburgh Napier University, where he is studying for a BA (Hons) in Accounting with Law. Zachary plans to become a Certified Accountant and is now considering paralegal studies after completing his degree. Zachary said “I am truly grateful to Campbells for recognising my potential and extend a sincere thank you to Campbells for helping to make my educational goals a reality, which would not have been possible without their support.”
Both Kira and Zachary spent their summer interning at Campbells where they received first-hand exposure to the day to day operations of the firm. Zachary gained experience working in our accounting department while Kira worked on a summer long project with the marketing team. “I am so appreciative of the opportunity Campbells has afforded me, not only with financial assistance, but with their continued support and guidance throughout their summer internship programme, which has provided me with invaluable experience,” commented Kira March.
“We are pleased to support these two promising young Caymanians,” says John Wolf, Partner and Head of Corporate. He adds: “We trust both Kira and Zachary will do great things upon completing their studies and it is evident that they both have promising futures ahead of them.”
