AFTER TEN YEARS, a student has been named recipient of the Tom Adams award for English, History and Languages.

Chloe Harvey-Read, a former student of Harrison College, now an under-graduate student at Bristol University, has been named winner of the Tom Awards award for English, History and Languages for her results in the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) 2015, and achieving Grade One in French, Spanish and Literatures in English.

Harvey-Read’s parents, Charles and Isabelle, who accepted the scholarship cheque on her behalf, extended gratitude on behalf of their daughter. chloe-harvey-read

“First Chloe would like to say a gracious thank you to the Government of Barbados for making this award to her. It is very relevant that it is on the crest of ten years as we celebrate 50 years of Independence. I know Chloe would also like to say thank you to her teachers who she has developed, I would predict, a lifelong bond with. They have been very instrumental,” her father Charles said.

“She would also like to say a big thank you to her mother, who also played an instrumental role in her getting to this point. I played a supporting role, but definitely it has been her mother’s driving effort and the efforts of her teachers and the school Harrison College,” he added. 

Chloe was among last year’s 27 Barbados Scholars. She is currently pursuing studies in English and European Law. (RA)
