Kenisha Castello, a student of the St. Joseph Convent Marriaqua, emerged as Laron Jones’ successor for the title of Junior Minister of Tourism in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Ministry of Tourism says.  

Castello will act in this capacity for one year. 

Apart from representing the destination at different tourism functions, Castello will lead on developing and creating tourism initiatives at her school and community. 

On Oct. 4, Castello, represented SVG at the annual Caribbean Tourism Youth Congress in Antigua and Barbuda. She was accompanied by Dorette Mayers, teacher at the St. Joseph’s Convent Marriaqua and Jewelene Charles-Scott, communication manager at the Ministry of Tourism, Sports and Culture.

She was one of 13 brilliant and exceptional young junior ministers who deliberated on one of three selected issues affecting tourism in the region.  

Castello’s topic focused on developing three strategies to improve “service excellence”. A three-pronged programme was proposed by the junior minister of tourism to achieve and maintain service excellence in SVG, specifically through legislation, education and technology, dubbed THE SVG LET PROGRAMME.

The ministry continues to provide opportunities to young people throughout SVG in an effort to empower, enlighten and excite the future generation on matters relating to tourism and hospitality.

  1. I do understand that Kenisha Castello is a secondary school student of the St. Joseph Convent Marriaqua. Congratulation to her and I wish her all success on this 1 year mission.
    Now the uncertain question is what has been arranged for this secondary school student following this project; tailored to further her education?

  2. things do not fall out the sky into peoples lap . Im sure if young ppl take the initiative and self motivated “skies the limit”!! . Once the infrastructures are in place its up to YOU to do the rest . Some Vincentians are lazy and waiting for the Gov to give them and opportunity . GO OU THERE AND ACHIEVE !……. MAKE YOURSELF GREAT.

    This is a excellent program aimed at I believe empowering , educating and motivating our young people who are our future leaders .
