Providenciales, 27 Oct 2014 – Press Release, Department of Youth Affairs
As TCI National Youth Ambassador, I would like to congratulate Mr. Kirschan Cox of the Marjorie Basden High School and Ms. Natalia Williams the HJ Robinson High School for their hard work and dedication which resulted in them both being named to the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Merit List. Mr. Cox for Building Technology: (Woods) and Ms. Williams for Food and Nutrition. Achieving these results is something to be proud, as one has to finish in the top ten of a subject area while competing with over 12,000 regional students. Therefore we must applaud them for their excellence. They both have done tremendously well on their achievements.
It is evident that our country is full of academic potential. The country has registered at least one student on the merit list since the year 2010 meaning that for four (4) consecutive years we have demonstrated tremendous excellence. We Turks and Caicos Islanders should be proud that we possess these abilities. We must never be scared or hindered to compete with the rest of the Caribbean because we have our very own unique ways of contributing to our society’s intellectual capacity. I see a country of success, and these students are evident to that.
As Turks and Caicos Islanders we must continue to encourage our students in their achievements. It is us who has the ability to succeed and it is us who achieve these results. Remember that God has us Turks and Caicos – never forget that. Once again I would like to congratulate Kirschan and Natalia and I hope that many more from the TCI will be added to the Merit List in the years to come.
