The bank opened the doors of its three-branch network in St. Kitts and Nevis two years ago, following the acquisition of the operations of the Bank of Nova Scotia by Republic Financial Holdings Ltd.

Eight ( contestants will participate in the Republic Bank National Talented Teen Pageant which returns to Sugar Mas 51 after a two-year absence due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

There are so many to be honored that it will take the SKNNCC about 3 – 5 years to pay tribute to all those who worked tirelessly in the above-named categories over the 51-year period.ย ย
