Head girl of Clifton Hunter, Marika Scotland received the first ever Deputy Governor’s award at her graduation as we showed you here on Cayman 27.
She also received a cash prize and an internship with government, which could be taken up within two years. At the moment, she is on an internship with Walkers through the Cayman Finance Internship Programme. Ms. Scotland said the award is more than just for her academic performance and spoke towards other facets which made winning the award possible.
“One of the things is like leadership and social responsibility so I think it works hand in hand with each other. So leadership not just in school but outside of school and social responsibility so community service and what the students have done in their community,” Ms. Scotland said.
Another Clifton Hunter graduate, Corey Lyn, was the other recipient of the governor’s award, which is given to a student who has shown significant improvement over the past two years.
