Ronald and Miriam White Scholarship Recipient (2017 & 2018)
In her own words, Ms. Myrie is thankful for the scholarships that she has received because they have helped this brilliant high school student from Westmoreland achieve some of her academic goals.
When I first looked at the “journey” to complete my BSc in Economics and Statistics, it seemed very daunting financially, spiritually, mentally, and physically. When it seemed like I would not have been able to complete my first year due to a shortfall in finances, the Ronald and Miriam White Scholarship from the Florida Chapter of the University of the West Indies came just in time and this scholarship changed my life for the better.
I am grateful beyond words for this scholarship and the timeliness of it. Because of your generosity, I have accumulated more accomplishments, formed some of the best friendships, and have been a part of a once in a lifetime experience.
