Five students from the Roseau Primary School will benefit from scholarships provided by LIME Dominica as the company honors its promise of transforming the lives of students through its adoption program. A cheque of two thousand, five hundred dollars ($2,500) was today presented to Principal Gretta Roberts towards the LIME RSP scholarship program.
Three girls and two boys – Miguel Andrew, Souljah Wiggans, Chardelle Prescott, Quanisha Johnson and Joshua Steadman are the recipients of the scholarships.
Principal Gretta Roberts said the timing is impeccable, making it possible for the school to assist students who have been affected by the recent tropical storm. “I am incredibly thankful for this support from LIME Dominica which will be transmitted to the children who have suffered loss, and are now recovering from the effects of the storm” said Miss Roberts.
She indicated that there are also parents who are not able to afford to get the basics for their children to attend school and this will certainly help meet some of those needs.
LIME’s General Manager Jeffrey Baptiste is pleased that the scholarships will provide relief to some of the students affected by the recent storm. “Four years ago we made a promise to the Roseau Primary School to support a mission to create a better life for the students through our adoption initiative. We are once again very pleased to be in a position to deliver on this promise. The scholarships to the students affected by Tropical Storm Erika, and other students who need support underpin our unwavering commitment to transforming the lives of the people of our beautiful country” said Mr. Baptiste.
The school which served as home to many displaced victims of Tropical Storm Erika opened its doors to the new school year on Monday of this week.
