The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T) on August 16, 2013 recognized the achievements of 17 of its employees’ children at the company’s annual bursary award presentation ceremony.
The awards were for children who were successful at the National Grade Six Assessment examinations
Chief Executive Officer, Mr. R. K Sharma, representative of the Guyana Postal and Telecommunication Workers Union (GPTWU), Mr. Hugh Park along with past bursary awardee Dr. Tonia Archer all addressed the students.
Mr. Sharma said that the award ceremony was a celebration with the students since “we believe in you”. He also advised them to never allow challenges to thwart their dreams, and to consider “today as the first day of the rest of their lives”.
Heading the list of bursary awardees was Ms. Kerryann Rodney who secured a place at Bishops’ High.
The bursary assistance continues for five years, as long as the child stays in high school with an extension of an additional two years if the child enters the sixth form.
The top student was also awarded complimentary DSL service.
