This years’ scholarship award ceremony was held in Kohima at the Heritage Hotel on Saturday 6th April. It was bigger than ever with 360 scholarships being awarded.
We were honoured to be joined by many supporters and donors of Scholarships which made the event extra special as the donors were able to meet their scholars for the first time.
KES organised a magnificent occasion. Trustees of KET were also present and took their turns handing out the scholarships to the students. Celia Grover was one of our supporters present and was accompanied by her son, Charles Grover (pictured)
