The Continental Society of Bermuda has awarded bursaries to three students in need of financial assistance for university.
One of the Students awarded was Bermuda Netballer Kayjuna Lema.
Denise Simons, President, Continental Society of Bermuda, says: “For more than 15 years, we have been able to award deserving students with bursaries to enable them to further their education. Our scholarship programme is near to our hearts and we look forward to assisting when and where we can. We believe our recipients this year are well-deserving and we can’t wait to see the good they will do in the world.”
Lema is currently in her last year at Manchester Metropolitan University studying forensic psychology. She graduated from Berkeley Institute in 2013 and attended Bermuda College from 2013 to 2016. Lema is a previous bursary recipient and this award will enable her to continue her studies.
The Continental Society of Bermuda is an affiliate chapter of the Continental Societies Incorporated, an international public service organization committed to improving the welfare of children in communities across the USA and Bermuda.
Founded in 1962 as charity number six, the Continental Society of Bermuda is supported by 100% volunteer membership of approximately 30 Bermudian women.
