(CMR) To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Mikes Ice offered two commemorative scholarships to one Caymanian. The recipient of this grand opportunity is Alexandria Ross (18), a past graduate of John Gray High School.
The scholarships will cover Alexandria’s academic sojourn at Inspire Cayman Training (ICT).
“It is with sincere gratitude and honor that I accept this scholarship from Mikes Ice. I am eternally grateful and thankful to Mikes Ice for granting me this scholarship as a stepping stone into my journey as an aspiring architect. New doors have now been opened for me and I will certainly use this scholarship to the best of my ability and knowledge,” shared an optimistic Alexandria Ross.
Inspire Cayman Training (ICT) is a licensed TVET center. Under the Ministry of Education, ICT is an Accredited Training Center for the National Center for Construction Education and Research, a US educational entity.
“Inspire Cayman Training is thrilled to partner with Mikes Ice, which has a passion for nurturing the growth of our youth. We are proud to grant Alexandria Ross the Mikes Ice TVET scholarship to further her progression in the field of Construction. Alex's unwavering commitment to pursuing a career in Architecture is truly inspiring, and together with the Mikes Ice family, we eagerly embrace the chance to bolster her ongoing pursuit in Architecture,” shared Michael Myles from Inspire Cayman.
“We extend an invitation to other organizations to join us in our mission to ensure that every young individual in our nation can access professional development and TVET training opportunities,” Myles added.
This move is a major part of Mikes Ice’s ethos to be deeply involved in the educational development of young Caymanians. Beyond celebrating their half-century anniversary, the ice company’s aim in offering this scholarship is to ultimately prepare individuals for a career in HVAC/Construction.
According to Jo-Anne V. Brown, Co-Founder and Director at Mikes Ice, “Encouraging the furthering of education and building of specialized skills has been a practice and principle of our business since inception with our earliest employees being sent away on scholarship in order to enhance their career development.”
