Applications for Smiths Academy Scholarship now open



Garry said: “As a personal friend of Will Smith and Graham W Smith and knowing their passion for diving – shallow or deep, reefs, wrecks, pot holes and caves/mines – I decided to forge something meaningful in their honour, hence the scholarship.”

He continued: “Many people enjoy diving, but not as many can say they share the same passion, enthusiasm, dedication and energy these two lovely guys brought into diving, not just for themselves but also the people around them.

“I will dedicate my time to teach the two successful applicants over a foreseeable future and experience as much as they want to learn about diving, wherever it takes them. Giving something back, in the spirit and enthusiasm of those we miss.”

He concluded: “This Scholarship is not in pursuit of monitory gain or reward, simply to remind us that we are what we can become and where you come from is not as important as where you are going.”

The closing date for applications is 18 February 2018. For more information, message the Facebook page: Smiths-Academy-Scholarship
