Flow celebrates newest scholarship recipients at annual High School Scholarship Program Ceremony

By: Flow, Press Release

    Basseterre, September 12th, 2023: Ten (10) primary school students who are set to begin their high school journey in September 2023 have received financial relief scholarships from communications provider, Flow. The addition of these new deserving students brings the total scholarship recipients currently enrolled in the program to 63. Each scholarship recipient receives funds to cover the cost of textbooks, uniforms, and examination fees throughout their high school journey, as well as their tenure at Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) and the Nevis Sixth Form. 


    Flow Saint Kitts and Nevis hosted a recognition ceremony under the theme, ‘35 Years of Investing in Our Youth, Transforming Lives Forever’, at the Solid Waste Management Corporation Conference Room on Thursday, 7th September 2023. The event included previous and current Flow scholarship winners, parents, representatives from the Ministry of Education, and Flow. 


    Speaking at the ceremony, Flow Country Manager, Lorraine Mitchell remarked, “It is with a deep sense of pride and satisfaction that our company continues to support the scholarship program in collaboration with the government and other stakeholders, and I congratulate this year’s awardees. As good corporate citizens we must be invested in the future leadership of our Federation and ensure that we play our part in assisting our young people to reach for their dreams.”


    The Scholarship Program and Award Ceremony are part of Flow’s commitment to the sustainable development and upliftment of youth in the Federation. With the cooperation of the Ministry of Education, the company awards scholarships based on outstanding academic achievement and good moral character. 


    The Chief Education Officer, Mr. Francil Morris on behalf of the Honourable Dr Geoffrey Hanley, Minister of Education et al remarked, “For over 35 years, your company has served as a ‘beacon of hope’, a catalyst of change, a true champion for empowering youth to achieve their goals. It is no secret that Flow’s commitment to education mirrors that of the Ministry of Education and together we will continue to play an important role in shaping our country’s future.”


    Since the inception of the program in 1988, hundreds of students have been awarded scholarships and have gone on to make significant contributions in many industries, including but not limited to banking, education, law, and politics. The feature address was delivered by Mr. Curtis Martin, a former speaker of the National Assembly and former Vice President of Human Resources at Cable and Wireless Saint Kitts and Nevis, and one of the first scholarship recipients in the program. 


    “Several years after receiving the scholarship, I sought a summer job at Cable and Wireless. I counted the coins, swept the floor, carried messages, did bookkeeping, and stayed late. I acted as though I owned the company," remarked Mr. Martin. Mr. Martin recalled the country manager’s presentation about possessing positive attitudes. 


    "The company loved how I worked so much that they ear-marked a position in the Accounts Department once I had finished school. However, teaching is my first passion, and I received a transfer to the Human Resources Department to live out this passion. My new role as a Total Quality Control Facilitator brought several training and experiences that has enabled me to facilitate the training of people. Now fast forward to today, I am one of the best trainers in the Federation. Why? Because Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) invested money in me. So, I want to let the record show that CWC is a solid contributor to nation building," proclaimed Mr. Martin.


    The 2023 Flow Scholarship Recipients include V’Quincia Mills and Junior Harris of the Saddlers Secondary School; Caydon Francia of the Charles E. Mills Secondary; Kaemarie Veira of Verchilds High School; Aundrewnique Clarke of the Basseterre High School; Abraham Gordon and Alique Gutierrez of the Cayon High; Nathalie Dunrand of the Charlestown Secondary and Azarias Hendrickson and Donavan Liburd of the Gingerland Secondary. 


    Flow congratulates the 2023 awardees and wishes them success in their future educational pursuits.
