Timothy Kemp wins a full scholarship from Coca-Cola


Timothy Kemp, Grand Bahama local, is the tenth recipient of the Carleton Williams Caribbean Bottling Company Scholarship

“I understand and appreciate the significance of receiving the Carleton Williams Caribbean Bottling Company Scholarship, as this would help me to excel in life and in all that I do,” says Timothy Kemp, a recent graduate of Walter Parker Primary School. “I am a hard-working, diligent and persistent individual and this scholarship opportunity would give me the chance to be an exceeding intellectual and help my parents, just as they’ve helped me.”

Timothy’s hard work and determination to attend Tabernacle Baptist Christian Academy for grade 7, and the rest of his high school career, paid off in June, as he completed a solo interview with a full panel of interviewers selected by Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC), local producers of Coca-Cola. With the start of the school year Timothy will become the tenth recipient of the Carleton Williams Caribbean Bottling Company Scholarship.

The Carleton Williams Caribbean Bottling Company Scholarship was established to both celebrate Mr. Carleton Williams’ contribution to Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC), and to continue his legacy of investing in the local community. The academic scholarship rotates annually between New Providence and Grand Bahama to one child graduating from a public primary school seeking attendance to a private high school.

Shannavieve Wallace, Timothy’s mother added “It is with a profound and unique mixture of joy, gratitude, pride, excitement and privilege, that we the Kemp Family capitalize on this opportunity to express cordial thanks and appreciation to CBC for electing our son Timothy Kemp as this year’s recipient of the Carleton Williams Scholarship.” Ms. Wallace also added, “We are extremely confident that he will make us all very proud.”

“It is with great pleasure that CBC continues the Carleton Williams Caribbean Bottling Company Scholarship, and we are pleased to honor our tenth recipient – Timothy Kemp who is an outstanding young man with infinite potential, said Jadrian Turnquest, Marketing Manager CBC, “and we are pleased to play a role in their lives and wish them continued success.”

Carleton Williams CBE Profile:
Mr. Carleton Williams CBE, was born in 1929, the second of eight children, to humble beginnings. After receiving his secondary education at Government High School he began employment with the Government of The Bahamas at the Treasury Department where he learnt the fundamentals of accounting and finance. Mr. Williams transitioned easily into the private sector, taking a position at Navios Corporation, a subsidiary of the United States Steel Corporation. He later tested his business acumen, becoming an entrepreneur in 1964 as a contractor for a housing development. From there he expanded his business to include retailing building supplies, and later expanded into fast-food when he introduced McDonald’s to The Bahamas.  The manufacturing sector was Mr. Williams’ next undertaking with the purchase of Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC), local producer of Coca-Cola products. With his reputation as a strong business man, he was invited to serve on several prestigious boards, including but not limited to New Providence Development Company Ltd., The Central Bank of The Bahamas, and Automotive Industrial Distributors Ltd. Recognizing the importance of giving back he also served as a Member of the Board for local charities such as the Salvation Army and The Crippled Children’s Committee. Committed to education, at age 50 Williams earned his MBA from the University of Miami. In 2016 at the age of 87, Mr. Carlton Williams CBE resigned as the Chairman of the Board for Caribbean Bottling Company, and in honor of his outstanding contributions to both industry and The Bahamas, the Carleton Williams Caribbean Bottling Company Scholarship was created.
