Douglas, 19, of Queen’s Drive, along with Beneka Browne of Peniston, Deon Pompey of Richmond Hill, Ronnia Durham of Old Montrose, Leytisha Jack of Layou and Ranella Billy of Byera, were the six announced this week as St.Vincent and the Grenadines’ 2005 National Scholars.

Charlene will leave tomorrow for the University of Southampton where she will study International Law. In her third year, she will transfer to the University of Singapore where she will pursue specialised studies in Trade Law before returning to Southampton to complete her law degree.

She topped the list of National Scholars with As for History, Law and General Paper, B for English and E for French.

“I’m very excited about the Prime Minister’s Award,” Douglas told SEARCHLIGHT, while adding that the National Scholarship did not come as a surprise to her after putting herself in contention for the prize with good grades in the A’Level Examinations. “I was surprised at the grades. I was really surprised at how high they were,” said Douglas.
