Peter & Company Distribution (PCD) has hosted their 2020 scholarship award ceremony virtually, presenting twenty-three (23) deserving young recipients with their bursaries and scholarships.
This recognition for academic excellence is the cornerstone of the Ricardo Leonard Memorial Scholarship Awards which are disbursed annually to students who meet and exceed pre-established criteria at every educational level; primary, secondary and tertiary.
Over twenty six thousand dollars (ECX$26,000) were awarded to successful students of the Common Entrance Exams, as well as those who maintained the required grade-point average during the academic year at secondary school and students who gained acceptance to their course of study at Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.
In a feature address to the 18 previous recipients, their parents, guardians and members of the PCD Team, Ms. Michele Kalloo, CEO, welcomed 5 new awardees to the program; saluting them all for their academic achievements.
In addition to the financial awards, Seven Seas gift bags were presented to the recipients.
