Dylan Logan, who is from Petite Martinique and attended the Hillsborough Secondary School, and Bishop’s College student Alliyah Gittens have received sports scholarships to attend Jamaica’s Edwin Allen High School. Logan has shown great potential in shot put and discus throw, and Gittens is an outstanding netballer.

Meanwhile Ashareah Enoe, along with Jamora Alves, who were among the first set of Kayak athletes to receive scholarship in Jamaica, have been able to secure full university scholarship to attend colleges in the United States.

Enoe is attending Highland University and Alves is at St. John’s University.General Manager Christopher Husbands led a team on an official visit to the Honourable Tevin Andrew, Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Government on Thursday September 8th, 2022.
