Tourism Cavendish Beach awards scholarship to Janaya MacNeill

Scholarships are available.

Tourism Cavendish Beach awarded the Matthew Jelley Business and Tourism Scholarship to Janaya MacNeill recently. 

The scholarship of $1,000 is available to P.E.I. students enrolled in a tourism or business-related discipline. 

The objective of the business and tourism scholarship is to encourage increased professionalism in the Island’s tourism industry. 

MacNeill graduated from Bluefield High School in 2018 and is currently in her first year of university.

“I live on a local dairy farm known as Parkview Tourist Home and Cottages; ambassadors to the tourist industry in Cavendish for over 60 years,” MacNeill wrote in her essay. 

“I have been coached by the best.” 

Steve Murphy, president of Tourism Cavendish Beach, congratulated MacNeill on the scholarship. 

“We are very pleased to present this scholarship to Ms. MacNeill. She got her start in the tourism industry early, and we are sure she will continue working to help grow the industry in the future.” 

The Matthew Jelley Business and Tourism Scholarship was set up in 2013 in recognition of Matthew Jelley and his dedicated service to Cavendish, Beaches & the Dune Shores Tourism

Association, now Tourism Cavendish Beach. 

Jelley has dedicated himself to his entrepreneurial pursuits in Cavendish, and at the same time has spent years volunteering to help build a stronger tourism product on P.E.I.
