Trump Turnberry’s Bar Supervisor awarded Chris Rouse Scholarship

Trump Turnberry’s Bar Supervisor, Jack McCormick has been presented with the Chris Rouse Scholarship by the Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland, in memory of the hotel’s former General Manager.

HIT Scotland, the Scottish hospitality industry charity which encourages the development of anyone working or studying in the sector, began a scholarship in Chris Rouse’s name in 2019 in memory of the former GM of the Turnberry Hotel, who was known for developing the highest standards for his guests and inspiring the best from his team.

The Chris Rouse Scholarship is traditionally awarded to someone working in the Ayrshire area, who the charity believes upholds the highest standards for guests and inspires the best from their team.

Jack McCormick, who has been working at Trump Turnberry for six years, will benefit from executive coaching sessions in addition to his chosen scholarship – the Whisky Appreciation Scholarship. It will see him complete a Certificate in Scotch Whisky with Edinburgh Whisky Academy.

Jack McCormick said, “I am extremely honoured and very grateful to have been chosen as the recipient of the Chris Rouse Scholarship; this means a great deal to me. The scholarship will not only provide me with valuable executive coaching sessions, but also serve as recognition of the highest standards we all strive for as a team at Trump Turnberry in providing an exceptional service to our guests.”

This year also saw HIT announce their 7000th inspirational scholarship when Amanda Pirie, People Manager at The Auchrannie Resort on the Isle of Arran, received the Art of Leadership scholarship.

David Cochrane, HIT Scotland Chief Executive, said, “It is inspiring to have so many of our HIT Scotland scholars in one place to celebrate their achievement this year. These learning experiences are absolutely vital for our sector, allowing fresh ideas to permeate throughout the industry and upskilling the Scottish hospitality workforce.
