(ZIZ)– Four students have been given a helping hand in their studies overseas after being named recipients of Michael L. King scholarship grants.
Camech Emanuel, represented by her uncle, Stephon Duggins, Stedroy Brand, and Akela Huggins accepted the awards during a presentation ceremony on Wednesday at the TDC training room.
Education Officer, Debbie Isaac, commended TDC Group Of Companies on their vision for the scholarship programme.
“Your public commitment to student development is deserving of praise. We all recognize that these are still fiscally challenging times. For an organization like the TDC group of companies to reward four deserving students in the Federation in the amount of US $5000 each is indeed testament to commitment of human resource capital,” she said.
Chairman of TDC Group Of Companies, Earle Kelly, said the firm sees this as an investment in the youth of the Federation.
“We consider it something that is important to do,” he said. “Not because we wanna get publicity but because it’s something that we ought to do. The citizens of the Federation are our customers, they are the ones who make us successful and we like any corporate entity need to give back.”
This is the seventh year that TDC has presented the MLK scholarship to local students.
