Six Students Get DCSLL Scholarships

The Dominica Co-operative Society League has presented full and partial scholarships for five years based on merit and need to six students, who are heading to various high schools island-wide, come September 2017.

On Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017, the League awarded Adeola Xavier, the top performer at the Grade Six National Assessment and a future student at the Convent High School, with the Joffre Robinson Scholarship for Excellence which was based on merit, and Meralda T. Thomas, who plans on attending the Isaiah Thomas Secondary School, was presented with the Sister Alicia Scholarship based on need.

The other four students, Curin Mesmain; Annilia Joseph; Gillo A. Jean and Jonathan C. Robin received partial scholarships based on need to attend the Goodwill Secondary School, Portsmouth SDA School, Portsmouth Secondary School, and the North East Comprehensive respectively.

General Manager of the Society League, Phoenix Belfield, said that the handing over of scholarships is a testimony of the credit union’s belief in the investment and development of the youth as a stepping stone for continuing the movement that the society has initiated.

“This is a very special occasion for us because here at the League, we have placed significant emphasis on youth development….We recognize that the investment and development in the youth are what is going to ensure that the movement remains prosperous, remains vibrant and remains relevant. That is why we place significant emphasis on youth development,” he said.
