Butterfield Announces 2009 Scholarship Winners

Butterfield’s President & CEO, Alan Thompson, said Butterfield’s Medical, Undergraduate and Postgraduate Scholarships, our two Overseas Education Bursaries, and our two Visual Art Awards were just a part of Butterfield’s overall Corporate Social Responsibility.

“So far, 2009 has been a year of unprecedented global challenges,” Mr. Thompson said. “That’s why it’s more important than ever to ensure the next generation has all the skills it requires to succeed. No matter what the current economic conditions are, Butterfield knows the most valuable contribution we can make to Bermuda is to invest in its young people.”

The 2009 Dr. James A. C. King Medical Scholarship recipient is Shammah Williams of Pembroke.
