Scholarship Program to Benefit Barrett Town Scholars
Last year, HTIL put its money where its mouth was and earmarked $1000 USD for Dec 25, 2016 for the inception of the Barrett Town Scholarship Fund project. Due to some unrest in the community (even to the extent where the community was on lock down on Christmas day), the official presentation took place Jan 22, 2017: In the picture above are the first 4 recipients (Left – Right): Simonique Simpson, Romique Leslie, Khaleil Lewis, Roshawn Salmon.
The award is specifically for the top Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) performing boy and girl from the two primary schools, Barrett Town Primary School and John Rollins Primary: The awardees also have to reside in the Barrett Town. This is only the begin! HTIL plans to to sustain the existing recipients while providing funds for four recipients every year; and by 2020-2021 school year HTIL goal is provide funds for 20 students.
