Maxine Emerich will be attending Sweet Briar College, Tromoui Malone will be attending the University of Tampa, and Elizabeth Davis will begin Veterinary School at the University of Pennsylvania.

All recipients are pursuing careers in animal care.
"Clearwater Consulting Concepts is proud to help the Humane Society of St. Thomas offer these scholarships. These were all phenomenal applicants that truly care about St. Thomas and the animals that live here, and we hope they can come back to share what they learn in school with the Virgin Islands," said Kirk Boeger of Clearwater.
This year's three successful applicants completed a 500-word essay on the link between animal and child abuse and how people can prevent, recognize and react responsibly to animal cruelty. For more information on the scholarship program and how to apply, please visit the Humane Society's Web site.
