CARIBANA™ announces the winners of its 11th Annual CARIBANA™/YORKGATE MALL SCHOLARSHIPS

The three winners of the 11th annual CARIBANA™/Yorkgate Mall Scholarships were formally announced on Tuesday, June 24th, 2014 during a press conference held in support of Caribana™ Arts Group’s CARIBANA™ Flags & Colours Children Festival to be held on July 12th, 2014 at Yorkgate Mall.


These annual scholarships are awarded to students selected from Toronto’s Wards 7, 8 and 9 to pursue their post-secondary education at Seneca College. This annual effort is administered by Caribana™ Arts Group, funded by Yorkgate Mall Administration, with production assistance provided by Seneca College, and by Metro Toronto Police Services (MTPS) – 31 Division.


“2014 is the first time ever,” says Alicia Sealey, Chair of the CARIBANA™/Yorkgate Mall Scholarship Committee, “that we have had all winning scholarship recipients coming from the same school! Notwithstanding, our selection committee is proud to contribute towards its winning recipient’s academic path(s) to success.”


This year’s scholarship winners are: Kevin Jagrup, Omonomon Omoregie, and Kadisha Murray.


Kevin Jagrup


Kevin Jagrup, 18, attends Westview Centennial Secondary School. The program he will be attending is Social Service Worker – Immigrant and Refugees … at Seneca College for September 2014. He has been awarded a scholarship of $1000 towards his academic tuition at Seneca.


Canadian-born, and of Guyanese heritage, says Jagrup, “It would be an honour to work with people within my community or with the Canadian government because it would make me a contributing member of society.”


Omonomon Omoregie


Omonomon Omoregie, 19, attends Westview Centennial Secondary School. He has been accepted into the Business Administration Program at Seneca College for September 2014. He has been awarded a scholarship of $500 toward his academic tuition at Seneca.                                                                                    …/2

Nigerian-born, Omoregie is enthusiastic about all things business including, “its nature and environment, mathematics of finance, as well as management studies, business laws in Canada. All my life, business men/women, have fascinated me.”


Kadisha Murray


Kadisha Murray, 19, attends Westview Centennial Secondary School. She has been accepted into the Early Children Education Program at Seneca College for September 2014. She has been awarded a scholarship of $500 toward her academic tuition at Seneca.


Canadian-born, both of her parents are from the Caribbean; her father is from Jamaica and her mother is from St. Vincent. “The Early Education program,” says Murray, “allows me to study how children of all ages think, play, develop and learn.”



“The annual selection process,” says Sealey, “could not have been done without the contributions and collaboration of my fellow 2014 scholarship committee members: Erika Enyolu (Yorkgate Mall), Constable Phillip Sinclair (Metro Toronto Police Services – 31 Division), Bebena Demian (Seneca College), and Wilma Cromwell-Cayonne (Caribana™ Arts Group).


“Their volunteer service was truly appreciated.”
