Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) Student, Ms. Zidane Knight, was the lucky recipient of a certificate of excellence and monetary contribution on October 25th from the Department of Statistics in St. Kitts.
This presentation came as a result of the department’s continued celebrations surrounding Caribbean Statistics Day, which is observed annually on October 15th and Ms. Knight performed the best in Applied Mathematics Unit One (Statistical Analysis) for the CAPE 2019 Exams.
The gesture is aimed at encouraging the recipient, as well as other students, to continue to pursue statistics and excel in the field.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Elretha Simpson-Browne, explained that the field of statistics is beneficial not just to the government, but also to the ordinary man and woman on the street.
Director of Statistics, Carlton Phipps, said that the activity is geared towards encouraging students to focus on careers in Statistics.
Director Phipps encouraged students to use the social media platforms of the department to do their research and gather information. The award was initiated in 2018 by then-Senior Director of the Department of Statistics, Gaile Gray-Phillip.
