The Star (St. Lucia) - - COMMENT -

On Monday September 4, 2017, Papil­lon by Rex Re­sorts proudly hosted its first an­nual schol­ar­ship dis­tri­bu­tion cer­e­mony in the re­sort's train­ing room. The team mem­bers whose chil­dren were re­cip­i­ents of the schol­ar­ships for the 2017-2018 aca­demic year were Ray Alexan­der from the Pur­chas­ing Depart­ment, Denise Joseph from the Food & Bev­er­age Depart­ment, Wiv­ina Au­gustin from the House­keep­ing Depart­ment and David­son Regis from the Food & Bev­er­age Depart­ment.

Fol­low­ing con­grat­u­la­tory re­marks, Papil­lon's Hu­man Re­sources Man­ager, Mrs. Ker­netta Wells, in ad­dress­ing the at­ten­dees, em­pha­sized the im­por­tance of the stu­dents ap­ply­ing them­selves and re­main­ing fo­cused. She stressed on the sig­nif­i­cance of them fo­cus­ing on their gen­eral at­ti­tude as well as be­ing mind­ful as to what and to whom they ex­pose them­selves.

The Res­i­dent Man­ager of the re­sort, Mrs. Natasha Cal­ixte, echoed a sim­i­lar mes­sage with em­pha­sis on the words, “ed­u­ca­tion is the key to suc­cess”. She en­cour­aged the stu­dents to aim high and to keep push­ing so that they can con­tinue mov­ing on fur­ther, not just stop­ping at sec­ondary school, but go­ing on to at­tain a de­gree. Ad­di­tion­ally, she stated, “There is a time and place for ev­ery­thing. Get in­volved in ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties. Cre­ate a bal­ance."

The Gen­eral Man­ager for Royal by Rex Re­sorts, Mr. Richard Michelin, added that the fiveyear schol­ar­ship is a demon­stra­tion of the re­sort's grat­i­tude to its em­ploy­ees and en­cour­aged the awardees to use it wisely.

The fu­ture is def­i­nitely a bright one for th­ese young and zeal­ous aca­demics. Papil­lon by Rex Re­sorts con­grat­u­lates each of the re­cip­i­ents and wishes them every suc­cess in their stud­ies.
