Bermuda Managing Partner Kiernan Bell commented: “This year’s scholarship and bursary recipients are a stellar group of academic and community-minded young Bermudians who are sure to make solid and long-lasting contributions to Bermuda’s professional industry and community. On behalf of all the Bermuda Partners of Appleby, we congratulate each of them for their achievements and we look forward to seeing their futures evolve by leaps and bounds.”
