KPMG continues to show a desire in supporting and
developing the young people of the Cayman Islands. Most recently, through its
scholarship programme, three young Caymanians graduated with their bachelor’s
degree and two new recipients received overseas scholarships to attend the
school of their choice. The firm also continues to support six other recipients
who are pursuing their undergraduate degree overseas and locally.
Christsania McLean is one such new recipient for KPMG’s
overseas scholarships. She recently completed her Associates Degree from
University College of the Cayman Islands with honours. Christsania will be
continuing her studies at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New
Jersey. Allison Hydes is the second
recipient; she graduated from the Cayman Islands Prep School and will continue
her studies at the University of Tampa.
David Shibli, Samantha Whorms and Tanja Scott completed
their Undergraduate degree overseas and are now working within the firm. Brian
Ogilvie and Daphnie Frederick are continuing their studies in the United States
with a concentration in Accounting. Frank Gale and Samantha Hennings are
pursuing their undergraduate’s degree in Canada.
KPMG also continues to support its local scholarship
recipients – Dennis Connor and Kishna Green. Both students are continuing their
bachelor’s degree at the University College of the Cayman Islands.
KPMG provides Cayman’s young people with an interest in
accounting the opportunity to continue their studies locally or overseas. Along
with their scholarship, students gain experience, training and knowledge
through interning with the various departments within the firm. This helps them
excel in various academic backgrounds and thrive in their studies.
Sheenah Hislop, partner, expressed her thoughts by
stating “We understand the importance of education in developing the skills
needed for tomorrow’s generation. KPMG works to provide young Caymanians with
the tools necessary to succeed in the financial services industry.”
