Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
July 10, 2009 (SKNIS)
Devontae Daniel of the Cayon Primary School was introduced on Friday, as the final recipient of the 2009 Cedric Liburd Scholarship Award.
Today’s ceremony concluded this year’s scholarship presentation. Earlier this week, sixth grade graduates Trevoncia Stanley of the Deane-Glasford Primary School and Guila Stuart of Beach Allen Primary School received the scholarship awards, which were personal contributions from Parliamentary Representative for Constituency #8, Honourable Cedric Liburd.
Minister Liburd told the class that the investments in education over the past decade have had a positive impact on the nation. He noted that government was presently working to upgrade the education system and he appealed for all students to appreciate and make use of the opportunities provided from a good education which has been offered free of charge for the past 40 years.
Devontae and his aunt thanked Minister Liburd for his contributions and assured him that the funds will be used to advance the development of the young man as he prepares to enter the Cayon High School in September.
Minister Liburd has been making similar donations to students from his constituency for the past 14 years.
