Thirteen students received $150 in bursaries from the Barrouallie Co-operative Credit Union Ltd (BCCU). These students are: Teyrique Thomas, Lanique Solomon, Janique Chambers, Kertello Edwards, Rowana Davis, Somurno Richardson, Kenzin Gould, Almina Browne, Reynoldlee Harper, Lenslee Modeste, Savio Jackson, Kitanna Richards and Deanique Browne. Ten of these students are Junior Savers.

Meanwhile, Drew Currency was awarded the BCCU scholarship of $500.

In his brief address, Brother Philbert Gould, president of BCCU, highlighted to the students the importance of having a sound secondary education. He further implored them to aim, always, for the highest grade. Students must never be satisfied with average or mediocrity.

Brother Gould also reminded parents and guardians present that they, too, should pay attention to the upbringing of their child or ward. According to him, they should keep communication links open at all times. He then encouraged members to continue to be thrifty and save for the rainy days ahead. The students were also reminded that the credit union was investing in them, and they, in turn, must give back to the organization when the opportunity presents itself.
