FLOW rewards student with Samsung Galaxy S10 for performance in CSEC
On Wednesday, August 14, Jolene Douglas became the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S10 handset compliments FLOW St Vincent.
Douglas who in 2018 received the award of Top Female Student after Remediation was elated when she found out of her good fortune. Back in 2013, Jolene’s performance at the CPEA was not what she was anticipating and had left her disappointed. This setback in her CPEA performance would serve as a springboard for Jolene in the future. Having two older sisters who attended the St Joseph Convent Marriaqua also filled Jolene with a sense of competition and she committed herself to excel in her academic journey.
“Having sisters who were Prefects at SJCM made me want to make a name for myself,” Douglas explained. After her transfer from the Thomas Saunders Secondary to the St Joseph Convent Marriaqua Jolene felt right at home and ready to compete with her sisters academically. Her CXC exam results included Grade 2 passes in Principles of Accounts, Textiles Clothing and Fashion, Social Studies, Integrated Science, Agricultural Science, Information Technology, and English A. Jolene received Grade 3 passes in English B and Mathematics which all combined for nine passes. Jolene credits her success to her mother’s dedication to pushing her and also her sisters for providing her a benchmark to strive for.
The Murray Village resident is now in her second year at the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College Division of Technical & Vocational Education where she has been pursuing studies in Accounting. Jolene aspires to a career in Accounting with special interest in Forensic Accounting. “Making mom proud, the family proud and even FLOW recognizing the effort I have been putting makes me feel so proud,” said Douglas.
The Flow Country Manager’s award was introduced over five years ago in an effort to encourage students who have fallen behind in their CPEA exams to strive for greatness. This award will always be true and dear to the Flow family as it shows that hard work and dedication brings great rewards.
