Nikala Williams, Senior Marketing and Corporate Communications Executive of Telecommunications Provider LIME on Tuesday said that her company is proud to be associated with this country’s Education Revolution.
Speaking in Kingstown at the 2014 National Awards, which recognizes the outstanding performances of primary and school students in their various examinations in 2013, Williams said that the identification and acknowledgement of outstanding scholastic achievement is one of the many ways LIME shows its continued support in the community.
“The Annual National Awards Ceremony complements our company’s annual calendar of educational events,” Williams said.
“Each year, we offer two scholarships to students of staff who performed well at the Common Entrance examinations and two additional scholarships are given to children of external customers for academic excellence also at common entrance.
“The sponsorship of the annual LIME Lions Club South Secondary Schools Public Speaking Competition, our in-house Internet Summer School; which provides training in basic and advanced computer and internet programming during the summer months, are just a few examples of our commitment to youth development and our support for the Education Revolution.”
Apart from sponsoring the event, LIME for the seventh year awarded the Most Outstanding Student after Remediation, which went to D’mario Browne of the Emmanuel High School Mesopotamia.
Williams presented Brown with a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Williams commended the students for their efforts and implored them to continue to aim for success in their chosen courses of study. She also congratulated the parents and guardians, and called on them to continue supporting their children and wards.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Ministry of Education for once again allowing us the privilege of partnering with them … Let this time be but a stepping-stone to continued growth and development,” Williams said.
LIME has been sponsoring the event for the past 10 years.
