Twenty-six fourth form students from secondary schools throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines were recognized by the Rotary Club of St Vincent last week, in the annual George Phillips Excellence Awards.

The ceremony, which took place last Thursday at the Methodist Church Hall in Kingstown, {{more}}awarded the students for their academic, sports, and community based achievements.

Thursday’s ceremony saw the students, their parents and teachers being treated to a luncheon, with the students receiving certificates of excellence, start up savings accounts from the Bank of St Vincent and the Grenadines (BOSVG) and a copy of the book ‘The Art and Science of Success’, co-authored by past president of the Rotary Club Dr Ken Onu.

Onu also delivered a well received motivational speech on overcoming adversity, as the featured speaker.

The awards and gifts were presented by Rotary Club president Dr Collin Boyle and Omari France, marketing officer of the BOSVG. Former Miss SVG and banking officer at BOSVG Shadeisha George also exhorted the students to continue to excel in their work as they advance in their academics.

The fourth form awards ceremony is held annually by the Rotary Club to honour its charter president George Phillips, who presided over the inaugural executive more than 40 years ago. He died in 1996 at the age of 68.
