This year, six students were named recipients of the internal scholarship programme, which was instituted more than 30 years ago by former general manager Charles Antrobus.

The successful students this year are Ahmar Delpesche, son of Shaka Delpesche; Myeisha Shallow, daughter of Victoria Jordon; Zariea DeSouza, daughter of Rohan Thomas; Afreeca Graham and Zawadie-Tu Graham, daughters of Cassandra Daniel; and Webser Roban, son of Marisabell Roban.

The scholarships are given to children of staff members who qualify to enter secondary schools throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Human Resource manager Sandra Matthews noted that the scholarship programme has witnessed many successes over these years.

Charlene Douglas, daughter of Kenneth Douglas, is an Island Scholar, while Fidel Neverson, son of Richard and the late Marcelle Neverson, is now a Planning Engineer with VINCLEC.

Matthews said that students are not only expected to be intelligent, but discipline also plays a major role in the selection process. Students are asked to provide a certificate of good conduct and their academic reports during the life of the scholarship.

“Whereas LIME provides the financing, we expect the students to maintain regular attendance, grades and excel academically,” Matthews said.(RT)
