After narrowing the Caribbean Bottling Company’s Carleton Williams Scholarship applicants down to just four finalists, the CBC team was deadlocked. All four students were exceptional, with amazing grades, glowing recommendations and big dreams for their futures. With only one scholarship spot available, the decision seemed impossible. After a long deliberation about the talented and bright group of sixth graders, the CBC leadership team decided to award a second scholarship. Kennedi Knowles and Anajah Culmer were both awarded full, 6-year scholarships at the private high school, of their choice.

When 11-year-old Kennedi received the call that she had won the scholarship, the phone line went quiet for a moment before her mother returned to the line, overjoyed by the good news. “She is at a loss for words”, Mrs. Knowles added. Kennedi was soon able to return to the line to say an emotional “thank you”.

Kennedi is an aspiring neonatal nurse who dreams of helping babies one day. She recently graduated from Garvin Tynes Primary as the school’s head girl and is excited to attend St. John’s College, in the fall.

Emotions were also high when Anajah’s mother received the call that her daughter had also won a full scholarship. She tearfully expressed her gratitude on her family’s behalf.

Anajah is an honor role student, with dreams of travelling the world and making her parents proud. She says that her mother is her role model, and that receiving the scholarship means a great deal to her entire family. She notes “I want do well and show my parents that all that they invested in me was not in vain.” Anajah will attend Aquinas College in the fall.

“Our team was so impressed with the CBC Carleton Williams Scholarship applicants,” said Nikia Wells, Marketing Manager – Communications. “This year, we met some extraordinary students, who are not only intelligent, but actively involved in their schools and communities. We were extremely happy to award Kennedi and Anajah with scholarships. We know that these ladies will do amazing things in the future.”

Kennedi and Anajah will join 2017 recipient, K. Kaiya Pinder, and 2016 scholarship winners, D’Ron & T’Ron Strapp, as the newest CBC scholars. Kaiya currently attends the Bishop Michael Eldon High School, and twin brothers, T’Ron and D’Ron, have just completed the eighth grade at Aquinas College.

The CBC Carleton Williams Scholarship was created to celebrate the work of Carlton Williams, who contributed greatly to the advancement of the Caribbean Bottling Company as well as his community. The academic scholarship rotates annually between New Providence and Grand Bahama, and awards one graduating public primary school student seeking to attend a private high school.
