As Barbados celebrated Education Month, the Barbados Light & Power Company is exhibiting its commitment to education, staff and families.

Shift Charge Supervisor in the Generation Department, Ian Hunte, was recently presented with the inaugural Emera/Barbados Light & Power Scholarship on behalf of his daughter Zoe Hunte.

The scholarship, which was offered in association with Emera, was open to children of current employees and retirees who are the parents or guardians of children who will be leaving secondary school and embarking on a post-secondary/tertiary education. Awarded as a result of her solid academic record, leadership qualities, community service, extra-curricular activities and a written essay, former student of Combermere School and Harrison College, Zoe Hunte, has commenced studies in Engineering at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, Trinidad. This is toward a career in Chemical Engineering.

She was thrilled to win the scholarship, which she felt would go a long way towards helping her to accomplish her goals.

Hunte and his wife Charmaine expressed appreciation for the scholarship facilitated by Emera and Light & Power and noted that they were looking forward to seeing their daughter blossom even further.
