In keeping with their motto, “We change lives one member at a time,” the Kingstown Co-operative Credit Union (KCCU) handed over two scholarships and two bursaries to four students last Friday.{{more}}
The ceremony, held at the conference room of the KCCU, saw awards given to scholarship winners Adelcia Howard and Malaika Williams. Howard comes from the Clare Valley Government School while Williams hails from the Belair Government School. Both will attend the Girls’ High School (GHS) when the new school term begins.
At the same ceremony Marcella Dublin and Tamika Simmons received bursaries. Dublin will pursue studies at the St. Joseph’s Convent Marriaqua (SJCM), while Simmons will attend the GHS. One of the 2003 scholarship winners, Ezron John, was on hand to witness the presentations.
A KCCU scholarship was first awarded in 1995 when it was given to Felix Bowman. Fourteen students have since benefited from the KCCU scholarship program which annually gives EC$900 for five years while the bursary is a one-time payment of EC$500.
Newly appointed General Manager of the KCCU Clement Lynch told the gathering the scholarships are part of a continued effort to be at the forefront of youth development. Also witnessing the event were Loans Officer Marcelle Alexander, Assistant Manager Alonzo Munroe and Chairman of the Education Committee Michael John.
