Dig­i­cel pro­vides over 20 School Schol­ar­ships to suc­cess­ful stu­dents of the 2015 Com­mon En­trance

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Dig­i­cel St. Lu­cia, in its jour­ney to con­tinue sup­port­ing ed­u­ca­tion and youth de­vel­op­ment, once again pro­vided schol­ar­ships to chil­dren around the is­land who were suc­cess­ful at the Com­mon En­trance Ex­am­i­na­tions. The suc­cess­ful stu­dents each re­ceived a mon­e­tary do­na­tion to­wards the pur­chase of their much-needed sup­plies plus they each re­ceived a school bag, lunch bag, pen­cil cases and ex­er­cise books for the new up­com­ing school year.

Un­der the Dig­i­cel Schol­ar­ship pro­gramme, staff mem­bers were given the op­por­tu­nity to nom­i­nate hard-work­ing suc­cess­ful stu­dents from their com­mu­nity who were most de­serv­ing of a schol­ar­ship from Dig­i­cel. Dig­i­cel staff mem­bers will be re­quired to ac­com­pany the stu­dents whom they have nom­i­nated to pur­chase their school sup­plies. This year, the Dig­i­cel Schol­ar­ship pro­gramme will be ex­tended up to a 5 year pe­riod, pro­vid­ing the stu­dents main­tain an av­er­age of sixty per­cent pass rate at the end of each school year.

Dig­i­cel pre­sented the schol­ar­ships to the stu­dents who were joined by their par­ents at the awards cer­e­mony, hosted at Palm Haven Ho­tel. Dig­i­cel’s cricket en­dorsee John­son Charles, a mem­ber of the West Indies Cricket Team, was present to en­cour­age and in­spire the stu­dents who re­ceived the schol­ar­ships.

Dig­i­cel’s Coun­try Man­ager Mrs. Siob­han JamesAlexan­der, ad­dressed the stu­dents con­grat­u­lat­ing them on suc­ceed­ing at the Com­mon En­trance Ex­am­i­na­tion.

“Dig­i­cel un­der­stands the im­por­tance of each Saint Lu­cian child hav­ing an ed­u­ca­tion es­pe­cially for the fu­ture de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try; it is be­cause of this we con­tinue to pro­vide schol­ar­ships to those who need it the most and we are proud to say that Dig­i­cel has pro­vided over hun­dreds of schol­ar­ships in the past years. We are com­mit­ted to the peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia and we will con­tinue to as­sist them in the fu­ture,” she ex­claimed.

The man­age­ment and staff of Dig­i­cel wish to con­grat­u­late all those who were suc­cess­ful at the 2015 Com­mon En­trance Ex­am­i­na­tions and wish them all the best in the up­com­ing school term.
