Bunbury opens up eight football scholarships at Keyano College

first_imgALEX Bunbury, the famed Guyanese-born Canadian superstar football player, has opened up the doors for eight of Guyana’s youths to attend college in his current homeland at Keyano College.Located in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, Bunbury told Chronicle Sport yesterday, that the scholarships will see the selected students, both male and females, being offered a chance to attend school free of charge.“The only expense is accommodation and meals and to that end, I had reached out to the Government of Guyana to assist,” Bunbury said during an exclusive interview.Channelled through the Alex Bunbury Sports and Academics Academy (ABSAA), the Canadian football Hall of Fame inductee stated, “I wrote to the Minister of Education (Nicolette Henry) about six weeks ago about this, and I’m happy to say that she replied timely and said that this is something her Government will be happy to support. So I’m just here waiting on a word.”Bunbury said an additional letter was recently sent as a follow-up “and as soon as we get a response and one which we’re certain will be in our favour, we’ll head into selection process with players and their parents, and then we’ll take it from there.”Bunbury also noted that next March, the College will be in Guyana to scout for players in the sport of basketball.“I can’t thank Keyano College enough for this great opportunity given to our young men and women for working with myself and the Guyana government to make this possible,” Bunbury added.last_img read more
