Lynne Mitchell Foundation Awards $2,500 High School Scholarships to Three Exceptional Seaview Students

Following last year's award of 2 high school scholarships of $2,500 each to Ashanique Russell and Ashaylia Duncan, students who graduated from Grade 6 at Seaview Primary School in July 2013, Lynne Mitchell Foundation last week awarded 3 high school scholarships of $2,500 each to Seaview students, Goldie Bourne, Ricardo Greaves, and Brianna Blair.

Bourne, Greaves and Blair were chosen for the awards based on their excellent academic records, community involvement, and the thought leadership and writing skills they demonstrated in their scholarship essays. Each student will continue to earn the scholarship yearly in $500 increments, provided they continue to demonstrate strong academic progress and extra-curricular leadership skills.

Lynne Mitchell Foundation Funds New Windows and Doors at Seaview Primary School

We have been working hard to meet our mission of "Loving Children . . . Changing Lives." Since 1959, Seaview Primary School has been serving the children and families in and around Round Hill, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. This small one-room school house has been meeting the needs of a community without very little in terms of building maintenance and upgrades. Lynne Mitchell Foundation is pleased to have been able to fund the replacement of the windows and doors for the school. Our next objective is to replace the leaky roof and repaint the interior and exterior of the school building. Through our fundraising efforts at our upcoming Night Under the Stars 2014 Gala on September 27th, we hope to raise the funds necessary to complete these initiatives. We hope you will join us at the event and together we can "Raise the Roof." To learn more visit our event website at
