KIWANI'S CLUB LAUNCHES EVERETT LAKE SCHOLARSHIPTuesday 15th August 2017
August 13, 2017– The Kiwanis Club of St. John’s Antigua in celebration of its 20th anniversary launches the Everett Lake Scholarship. Ten (10) primary school students will benefit from this needs based initiative whereby each recipient will benefit from up to EC$500.00 in school supplies.
The scholarship is designed to target students whose parents/guardian face difficult economic circumstances and are not able to provide their young children with the basic supplies for the academic year.
Application forms are available from churches, health clinics or any member of the Kiwanis Club of St. John’s Antigua. Forms can also be downloaded from the Club’s Facebook page . The deadline for submission of applications is August 24th, 2017.
Community Services Chairperson, Natasha Watts indicated that the scholarship initiative was conceived as the ideal way to mark the Club’s 20th Anniversary of service in Antigua and Barbuda. ‘Our Club is about making a difference in the lives of the youth, and this project seeks to reach those with the greatest need. We have chosen to pay homage to our Charter President, DP Everett Lake, who contributed tremendously to the growth and work of our Club, by naming the scholarship in his honour’.
It is intended that the Everett Lake Scholarship for primary school students will be an annual affair with the potential to expand based on the availability of resources. Proceeds from fundraising projects inclusive of their annual High Tea which is held in Nelson's Dockyard, go towards the scholarship initiative alongside other Community Projects.
