Two former Girls’ High School students, who currently attend the St. Vincent Community College, are the recipients of this year’s Teachers’ Credit Union tertiary education scholarships. The two, Cherise Stoddard and Thandi Williams, received the awards last Monday at the offices of the Teachers’ Credit Union in Paul’s Avenue. {{more}}

Williams, accompanied by her mother Gloria, thanked the Credit Union, while Stoddard said she was very happy to get the scholarship and promised to work hard to excel in her studies. Stoddard was accompanied at the activity by her father Dr. Alston Stoddard.

Also present at the handing-over ceremony were president of the Credit Union, Curtis King, and development officer Byron Wilson. Wilson pointed out that the Teachers’ Credit Union has been giving scholarships since 1994, since it believes in putting members first as it provides a great service that gives an even greater return, “as is evident”.

Addressing the gathering, King said the institution can be painted as one with a fine track record when it comes to the development of the membership. He congratulated the participants and asked them to encourage others to join the credit union.

Some outstanding scholars who have benefited from a Teachers’ Credit Union scholarship include one of this year’s island scholarship winners Elingford Roban, and Mishka Jacobs, who was recently called to the Bar.

Last Monday’s scholarships were handed over by staff member Tamara Bishop.
