Rotary Club of Portsmouth Presents US$1000 Scholarship to Nyami Gabriel of Dominica SDA

At 2 pm on Monday July 24th the Rotary Club of Portsmouth held a brief presentation ceremony  honoring the recipient of its first annual scholarship to Nyami Gabriel, a fourth form student at Dominica SDA Secondary School.  
The US$1000 scholarship is the gift of the Rotary Club of Portsmouth and the Rotary E-Club of Southeastern USA and Caribbean.  
The scholarship is given to cover tuition, uniforms and textbooks and school supplies for the coming school year.
Making the presentation held at Champs Hotel & Restaurant was the Club President, Ezra Fabian.  Others in attendance in addition to Nyami and her mother Patsy Belle included Rotarians Lise Van de Kamp, Hans Schilders,  Anne Winn and Sari Prosper,  chair of the scholarship selection committee.
The theme of Rotary International for the year 2017-2018 is “Making a Difference” and the Caribbean District has refined that to “Making a Difference in Education so this scholarship is fully in line with the Rotary goals.
We wish Nyami all the best with her studies and are looking forward to see her reach her goals in life.
Rotary = Service Above Self, supporting the community where we can, when we can.
