October 15, 2014

With an increased commitment to developing the country’s infrastructure and its people, China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) Americas Division awarded scholarships to five Jamaican students enabling them to pursue studies at Hohai University in China. The happy five are past students of Excelsior High School and St. Georges College (Rushawn Marshall); Glenmuir High School (Clenmar Rowe); Dinthill Technical High School (Tashae Thompson); Manchester High School (David Scott) and St. Jago High School (Kemmisha Skinner).  While in China, students will be majoring in Harbour Coastal and Offshore Engineering.

“This isn’t CHEC’s first time of giving back,” remarked Rushawn Marshall. “They have been a company that seeks to encourage education from the base level to the very top. Even though this isn’t their home country, they sure make you feel a part of their culture with all the love and support they offer,” he noted.

China Harbour will absorb all the students’ costs for the entire five year programme, including airfare, accommodations, food, transport and school supplies. The company continues to contribute to the economical, environmental and social sustainable growth of the countries in which it has projects.

Established in 1915, Hohai is among the top universities in China especially in the areas of engineering, science, economics, management, liberal arts and law.
