The Program

 

 

MESSAGE FROM HER EXCELLENCY
DAME MARGUERITE PINDLING
The Governor-General
Commonwealth of The Bahamas

 

I am delighted to extend greetings to the Primary School Student of the Year Awards Program on the observance of the 19th Awards Program.

I am aware that from its inception in 1997 the Awards Program in partnership with the Bahamas Pan-Hellenic Council, has worked tirelessly to recognize over 1,800 outstanding sixth graders from around the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. This is no small feat, and I commend and thank all who have made, and continue to make a positive impact on the lives of young students through this excellent program.

This year, I understand that the Foundation will recognize 110 students from public and private schools from New Providence, Grand Bahama, and the Family Islands. These students represent the hope of our future, inasmuch as the program has nurtured many who now serve as teachers, nurses, doctors, lawyers and a cadre of other professionals and future nation builders.

I therefore extend sincere congratulations to all the nominees for your excellent achievements and I encourage you to continue to strive for excellence in all of your endeavors. You are the future of our beloved Commonwealth, and I am certain that you are aware that this honour is just the beginning of many great accomplishments you will experience.

Once again, congratulations to the principals of the Awards Program and the honourees and I wish you every blessing.
