Ms Paynter went on to say, “We were pleased that the Ministry of Home Affairs, recognizing its importance to the community, pledged $5,000 towards the Scholarship programme and we hope that, going forward, residents, businesses and other organizations based in the parish will also support the initiative by contributing to the fund to ensure that scholarships can continue to be offered to parish residents each year.”
