Two female students of the Barbados Community College's hospitality institute are the winners of the inaugural Peter Barker Memorial Scholarship.
21-year-old Pedrina Haynes and 20-year-old Shayna Howard beat seven other applicants to receive the awards each valued at $2500.
Both are elated.
Donor Nigel Barker explains the scholarship serves to honour his late brother.
He also hopes the students will make good use of the award.
