Basseterre, St. Kitts, August 12, 2019 (ZIZ News): Tiquan Thompson and Trevancia Carey of Tabernacle village are the 2019 recipients of the Sonia Boddie Promising Youth Leader Scholarship.
The two students have earned themselves a shopping trip in Basseterre with Clerk of the National Assembly, Mrs. Sonia Boddie-Thompson, to purchase $500 dollars’ worth of school supplies each, inclusive of uniforms.
The students who would be attending the Saddlers Secondary School in September 2019, received their scholarship certificates at a brief ceremony held at the Edgar T Morris Primary School in Tabernacle on Monday August 12.
The Scholarship which is fully funded by Mrs. Sonia Boddie-Thompson, was founded in 2014, as a means of giving back to her community and to the students of the first learning institution she attended.
The Sonia Boddie Promising Youth Leader Scholarship which is in its sixth year has sponsored a total of 15 children from the Tabernacle community to date.
