Tricia Campbell, a fourth-year medical student at the University of the West Indies, Mona, was the recent recipient of a scholarship cheque for $200,000 towards her tuition, from PRO Communications Limited and the Stella Maris Foundation. The official presentation of her scholarship cheque was made to her on Friday, February 19 at PROComm, 2 Phoenix Avenue, Kingston 10.

Campbell has been excelling despite numerous challenges she has faced over the years. She has also volunteered with numerous projects coordinated by the Stella Maris Foundation. It was for these reasons, her outstanding academic performance, and more, that she was chosen for this donation. During the last four years, Campbell received small grants from Stella Maris. This is her largest scholarship cheque to date, which she said she was extremely grateful for.

The cheque was presented by Jean Lowrie-Chin, managing director, PROComm, and members of the board of her company. Just two days before this presentation, PROComm's founding director, Maisie Lowrie, passed away. The PROComm directors dedicated this grant to her blessed memory.
