(CMR) Water Authority – Cayman has announced that Levi Superville is this year’s recipient of the Authority’s Annual Scholarship. Superville will begin his studies in Chemical Engineering at McMaster University in Canada this fall. He will participate in the university’s CO-OP program, which provides an enhanced educational experience by alternating between academic study and work terms.
“I am very excited to have been selected as the Water Authority’s scholarship recipient. I look forward to being an ambassador for the Authority and hope to one day mentor other young people as they begin to prepare to start their careers and studies,” Mr. Superville said.
Mr Superville’s fascination with engineering began with discussions with his uncle, who is an engineer. Following a school tour of the Water Authority’s facilities, Mr. Superville recognized that engineering is essential in the Authority’s mission to provide potable water to the population. He is excited to pursue a career that would be continually engaging and where no two days would be the same.
In addition to his studies, Mr. Superville has a passion for track and field, primarily distance running. He has represented the Cayman Islands on three occasions at regional and international track and field events. He also assists with coaching at his track club and mentors other students in chemistry. Mr. Superville also enjoys fixing jet skis.
Water Authority Director Dr. Gelia Frederick-van Genderen said the organization was proud to support Mr. Superville.
“Enabling Caymanian students to pursue their educational goals is very important to the Authority, particularly when it comes to the S.T.E.M. subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics,” she said.
“The water industry, in particular, relies on professionals from these fields, and the Authority is proud to support a young Caymanian’s pursuit in this area. We wish Mr. Superville all the best as he pursues his degree,” she added.
Every year the Authority offers a scholarship of up to CI$35,000 to a suitably qualified Caymanian to obtain an undergraduate academic or technical/vocational degree or diploma in a field of study relevant to the Authority’s work.
The Authority will begin accepting applications for the 2023 Scholarship in the fall of 2022. For more information about the Authority’s Annual Scholarship, please visit www.waterauthority.ky/scholarships-how-to-apply.
