The Carolyn A. Bartlett Award


The children of Carolyn Bartlett (including our Director, Helen Bartlett-Hanna), to commemorate her 83rd birthday, encouraged guests at her birthday party to make a contribution to The Chance Foundation to assist with much-needed funding for the continuing education of inner city youth of The Bahamas. By their generosity the seed was planted for Patrick Brown to attend Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute to study Technology. He had suffered an extremely difficult childhood but believes that his values were strengthened by his experiences. Brown was selected by the Bartlett Family from among a number of applicants to receive The Carolyn A. BartlettAward for tertiary education as his need appeared to be the greatest and his circumstances the most deserving. Brown also fulfilled a fundamental eligibility requirement of being a graduate of the S.C. McPherson secondary school in Nassau. S.C. McPherson was a respected and renowned Bahamian educator and the grandfather of Carolyn Bartlett. This is intended to be a revolving Award for students who meet the mentioned requirements.
