The 2020 recipient, Jaiden Furbert-Jacobs, will commence his undergraduate degree in actuarial science at Penn State University in September. With a passion for mathematics and its analytical and problem-solving qualities, Jaiden is keen to pursue a career in his favoured subject and become an expert in the actuarial field. In addition to his academic achievements, Jaiden participates in numerous extracurricular activities; he’s a determined track and field athlete, serves as a student youth leader at his church and as head boy at Berkeley Institute. He plays an active role in the Future Leaders of Bermuda organisation and serves as a student mentor at his alma mater, West Pembroke Primary School. Jaiden said, “I have learnt that in order to see dreams come to fruition, we must conquer our fears and invest in ourselves and our minds. Success is always earned, never given.”
Kim Simmons, Senior Legal Counsel and Chairman of the Sir Harry Butterfield undergraduate scholarship committee said, “Each year I am impressed by the talented and deserving young candidates applying for the undergraduate scholarship. Jaiden encompasses all the qualities we look for; his work ethic, desire to succeed and commitment to making a positive impact on his community demonstrate his award is well-earned. We are delighted to support his academic endeavours and wish him all the best in the future.”
