(CNS Local Life): Arin Broderick, the 2017 Butterfield Bank Undergraduate Scholarship recipient, will begin her studies at Boston University in January 2018, starting with a special two-year interdisciplinary programme where she will attend classes in both Boston and London, as a foundation to complete her studies in medicine. Broderick graduated with a 4.09 GPA from Darlington Boarding School in Rome, Georgia, in the US.

In addition to a host of academic achievements including being inducted into the National Honour Society and the Spanish Honour Society, she earned spots in both the director’s and headmaster’s honours lists. She also is an avid musician; she plays classical guitar at Trinity College of London Exam level, was a senior leader of an a cappella group at her school, and was a finalist at the 2016 Universal Orlando Music USA Festival.

“Arin is a well-rounded student with impressive academic achievements, as well as genuine passion and pride for her country,” said Amanda Bodden, member of the bank’s scholarship committee. “We have every confidence that she will excel in her studies and contribute significantly to the local community upon her return.”

Butterfield managing director Michael McWatt added, “We congratulate Arin and wish her the very best of luck in her studies. Butterfield continues to be committed to the development of Cayman’s young people. Through this scholarship we can have a positive impact on the development of tomorrow’s leaders.”

This is the 25th year of the annual scholarship, which is a programme that ensures financial support for further educational development among young people in the local community.

Available for any course of study that will benefit the Cayman Islands, the scholarship awards the recipient with up to US$30,000 annually, for a maximum of four years. Past recipients of this scholarship include teachers, lawyers and architects within the Cayman community.

The application process for the 2018 scholarship will begin in February next year.
