Norris Mitchell continues to support his alma mater, the St John’s RC School, and three awardees have already benefited from the first Norris Mitchell Full Scholarship Award.
From 2000-2005, the sum of EC $2000 per student per annum, provided for 3 successful Common Entrance students, whose parents found it difficult to meet the cost of providing a secondary education for their children. Chad Knight, a former student of Presentation Brothers College, has since graduated from university and is practising as a professional mechanical engineer in the USA. The other two, Abigail Williams and Dwayne Purcell are gainfully employed in Grenada.
The second award in 2014 will be provided to 2 successful students who have passed the Caribbean Primary Exist Assessment (CPEA) exam, held in May of this year. On the receipt of the examination results in June, the 2 successful students who will be given full scholarships to the school of their choice for the duration of their 5 year secondary school period (2014-2019), at EC $1500 per student per annum, are:
11 year old Kazim Dottin to the St Rose Modern Secondary
12 year old Chelsie Greasley to the St Joseph Convent, St George’s.
Mitchell, in making the presentation, took the opportunity to wish Kazim Dottin and Chelsie Greasley a successful and rewarding secondary educational journey, which hopefully would form the template for a fulfilling future career.
