- PEP SCHOLARSHIPS
The 2019 Seprod Foundation Scholarship Awards – the Champions of Tomorrow – saw 39 new scholarships and 68 continuing scholarships awarded to Primary Exit Profile (PEP) students. The Granville Marsh Award was awarded to high performing students in St. Thomas for the second year in a row. The students were Kyle Mignott who is now attending Campion College and Yemisi Rose who is now attending Seaforth High School. This very special award was presented to the students by the family of the late Granville March, Mrs. Claudette Marsh and Ms. Kerry Marsh. Campion College student, Jamia Williamson copped the Byron Thompson Award for Academic Achievement.
Guest Speaker, Shani McGraham-Shirley, Founder of Yah Suh Fitbox, and Serge brand ambassador motivated the students with a riveting talk about the value of hard work and owning their uniqueness, and successes. “Do not let anyone limit you, and definitely do not limit yourself… you are destined for greatness” – Shani McGraham-Shirley, Guest Speaker
- AGRICULTURAL SCHOLARSHIPS
Additionally, at the tertiary level, 5 deserving students from the College of Agricultural Science and Education (CASE) were awarded scholarships to cover tuition for one year. Seprod Foundation continues to support and encourage careers in the agricultural sector. In addition to the scholarship, these students are given the opportunity to intern with Seprod at Serge Island Dairy Farms, getting hands on experience in Jamaica’s growing agri-business industry.
