In an awards ceremony held this week, Windward and Leeward Brewery Limited (WLBL) presented three deserving students with scholarships to attend secondary school. The students, Brianna St. Clair, Maya Francois and Phoebe D’Auvergne, were all successful at the 2017 Common Entrance Examinations.
“We are extremely proud of Brianna, Maya and Phoebe’s performance,” stated Fayola Ferdinand, the company’s Corporate Relations Manager. “These scholarships highlight our commitment to the well-being of our employees and their children. People are a country’s greatest asset and what better way to develop this asset but by making investments in education and youth development? The WLBL family is as excited as they are to embark on this new journey and we will be here supporting them as they grow and develop into young professionals.”
Past scholarship awardees Nadian Joseph, Gina Mondesir and Alazne Estaphane were commended for obtaining over 75 percent cumulative at their end of term exams, and Yanad Joseph and Jamil St. Paul for maintaining their scholarship for another year.
Mr. Pius Bastien, guest speaker and Principal of the Desruisseaux School, urged the students to continue being committed to their goals and dreams. He also encouraged parents to work with their children to ensure their future success as, in his words, “it doesn’t just stop with receiving the scholarships.”
WLBL has congratulated the new scholarship awardees and the students who maintained their scholarships for the upcoming school year. The company remains committed to the education and enhancement of employees and their families, and continuing to grow and develop with Saint Lucia.
