Secondary School students awarded as part of ICU Week 2021

As the observance of International Credit Union week 2021 (Oct. 17th to the 23rd) continues, on Monday, the Nevis Co-operative Credit Union (NCCU) awarded Eldon Herbert Jr. and Kam’ron Lewis of the Gingerland Secondary School and Kaian Saddler of the Charlestown Secondary School with academic scholarships.


The latest scholarship recipients took the number of students, that have benefitted from the scholarship program to 68, since its inception in the 1986.



That was NCCU’s General Manager, Sydney Newton.


NCCU’s scholarship program provides financial support to students throughout their secondary school life and extends to those students who enroll in the Nevis Sixth Form College or the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College in St. Kitts.




Representatives of Pink Lily Cancer Care and the government’s senior citizens division within the social services department were also present to accept monetary donations to their causes.



President of the NCCU’s board of directors, Vernesia Walters, who witness the ceremony, had this to say:
