St, George's, Grenada - As a corporate business organization, The National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) continued for the 10th year to award employees' children for their achievement in the Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA) Examination.
To date 70 students have benefitted from this initiative which in many ways have enhanced their educational experience in school and complemented their learning at home.
This year driven by its responsibility and commitment to ensuring that there is a balanced pool of qualified human resources who would contribute to nation building, the Authority awarded ten (10) more students with vouchers in the worth of $300.00 each, plus other school items, which will help to defray some of their educational expenses and encourage them to continue to perform well in their studies.
In speaking to the awardees, Chairman of NAWASA's Board of Directors Mr. Terrance Forrester said "Your achievement today proves that given the right opportunities, you can thrive and do well in your education. Undoubtedly the support provided by NAWASA to its employees and their children will be able to realize potential and attain their goals."
The Authority values the efforts of staff in providing the award to these children, allowing them to develop into competent individuals who are able to overcome challenges in today's ever changing and competitive environment.
The Award Ceremony was held on Friday August 1st, at the Main Office on the Carenage in the presence of parents, well-wishers and employees.
