Emma Turnbull, Minds Inspired Scholar
2014 Minds Inspired Scholar
Cayman Prep and High School (CPHS)
Emma, class of 2016, graduated with honours and distinction from Cayman Prep and High School and received the Year 11 subject prize in GCSE PE.
A well-rounded student Emma enjoys a range of extracurricular activities that include volunteering as assistant to the programme coordinator for Positive Intervention Now (PIN), run by St. George’s Anglican Church. This affinity for working with younger students also attracted Emma to Cayman Prep’s buddy learning programme, where she helps younger students in STEM subjects.
This past summer was busy for Emma. She attended a two-week academic and leadership camp at Stanford University with other Minds Inspired Scholars; and then, to complement her A-level Geography studies, Emma visited Iceland and experienced geysers, waterfalls and glaciers first-hand and visited the only place on earth where you can stand on two tectonic plates at the same time.
An accomplished and competitive squash player, Emma has held the title of junior girl’s national champion for five years, winning in the 2016 National Junior Squash Championships U17 division this summer. She has also competed internationally as a member of the Cayman Islands National Team placing fourth in the regional Caribbean Area Squash Association tournament, U17 division, for 2016.
Emma, we wish you continued success this year as you begin your A-level studies.
