(CNS): Two Caymanian students have been awarded undergraduate scholarships from Campbells for 2015. Kira March is entering her first year at St Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia and will pursue a bachelor of science in human kinetics. Zachary Powery, a three-time Campbells scholarship recipient, is entering his fourth year at Edinburgh Napier University, where he is studying for a bachelor of arts (hons) in accounting with law.

Campbells marketing manager Nicole D’Heer Watson explained why the two were chosen. “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,” she said.

March 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.

Powery plans to become a certified accountant and is now considering paralegal studies after completing his degree. “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,” he said.

Both students spent their summer interning at Campbells where they experienced first-hand the day-to-day operations of the firm. Powery worked in the accounting department while March 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,” March said.

John Wolf, partner and head of corporate at Campbells, added, “We are pleased to support these two promising young Caymanians. 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.”
