7 Belizeans recieve US Scholarships

Seven Belizeans will be going to the United States to participate in two different education exchange programs. Ted McKoy of Dangriga, Anya Moguel of Santa Elena, and Maggie Ruiz of Belmopan will be studying in Amherst, Massachusetts as part of a five-week study of the United States InstitutionsStudent Leaders Program.
This program selects twenty students from Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama to strengthen their leadership skills and understanding of US culture and society. Meanwhile Brian Almendarez of Cayo, Dale McDougall of Belize City, Elzafania Bol of Toledo, and Latanya Gamboa of Belize City will leave for the United States in early August to attend a year-long international exchange program. Brian Almendarez and Dale McDougall will be studying media at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, Florida; Elzafania Bol will study Health Sciences at Greenville Technical College in South Carolina and Latanya Gamboa will study Health Sciences at Gadsden State Community College in Alabama.
The students are expected to graduate with a certificate in their field of study or an Associate’s Degree. Both programs are being sponsored by the United States Embassy.
