So this youngster Kymarni Newton, pictured here with his loving mom, is truly special. During one of the relay races in the first ever National Primary School Relay Championships in St Kitts, the baton was dropped. He did not throw his hands in the air or give up. NO. He went picked up the baton and continued his race and was eventually able to win the race for his team and his school, the Charlestown Primary School.

The grit and determination shown by young Kymarni are exactly what we need more of in our Nevis. At his age, he has shown us that we do not give up in the face of adversity or difficulty, but we fight on, and ultimately, we shall succeed.

Thank you, Kymarni!! Keep Pushing! The sky is the limit!! Congratulations!!
