Campbells invests in education

Campbells Attorneys-at-Law is again
turning its efforts into assisting students looking to undertake further
education.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary,
Campbells is maintaining its focus on giving back to the community by helping strengthen
education in the Cayman Islands.

“We began our scholarship programme
a few years ago and last year, assisted a number of John Gray High School
students with their further education as well as an undergraduate student at university
in England,” said Campbells Managing Partner Alistair Walters.

“We are continuing to help fund
some of these young peoples’ studies for another year; however we are now also
accepting applications from new students to begin their further education this
September.”

Applications for scholarships are
reviewed and interviews conducted by Mr. Walters, Campbells partner Ross
McDonough and Managing Director of Campbell Corporate Services Ltd. William Chisholm.

Mr. Walters said students do not
have to be studying law to receive a scholarship from Campbells.

“We are almost unique in Cayman in
that our sponsored students can study any subject,” he said.

“Students are currently using their
sponsorship to study for a broad range of A-levels as well as further studies
in education, construction and other subjects at the University College of the
Cayman Islands. We do, however, require the students on our programme to be
dedicated, hard working and motivated to succeed.”

Campbells’ has been serving the
needs of both their local and international clients since 1970 and Mr. Walters
said the firm’s longevity in Cayman gives it a perspective that is wider than
most.

“We are committed to the local
community and view supporting the education of focused students who are
committed to success as both an investment in their future and that of the
Cayman Islands as a whole.”
