Earlier, a truly significant ceremony this morning as the first-ever Cedric Armbrister Scholarship was awarded by the Nevis Electricity Company (NEVLEC) to Erim Herbert of Cotton Ground, Nevis. Herbert will be studying engineering at the University of the West Indies.
He stated,” I feel proud today that the vision of this Government of putting people first is now being manifest in all of our various agencies and statutory entities.”
Young Erim is a wonderful example of young Nevisians with huge potential who just need an opportunity. NEVLEC provided him with that opportunity and did so in the name of one of the pioneers in electricity generation in Nevis, Cedric Armbrister, of blessed memory.
Earlier, he also extended huge greetings to the Leeward Islands U19 cricket team for winning the Cricket West Indies tournament. A special shout out to my cousin Onaje Amory and skipper Carlon Tuckett. Well done to the entire team.
