As the reopening of school approaches, the Supreme Ventures Foundation (SVF) has secured four students with a scholarship of $200,000 to fund their education for one year.
These youngsters were campers at the Junior Creators Robotic Camp and were honoured for their brilliance across a range of categories. The campers, Katalima Baroo of Independence City Primary School, Malia Simpson of St Andrew High School, Robeano Davis of Waterford Primary School, and Raheim Daley of St Francis Primary earned the title of “super achievers” for excellent performance, teamwork throughout the series of the camp, and for each exhibiting a superb attitude.
According to Supreme Ventures Foundation (SVF) Director Heather Goldson, the foundation is happy with its dedication to carrying out its goal and is overjoyed to recognise the students for their exceptional talent and dedication.
“We are happy to award these scholarships to these driven youngsters because we will be enabling them to advance and receive the support they so richly deserve. One of the foundation’s cornerstones is to support young, brilliant minds in our nation, and this scholarship opportunity is just one more way we’re showing how committed we are to doing so,” said Goldson.
The Junior Creators Robotics Camp, which lasted five days and took place at Ardenne High School, introduced primary school-aged children (ages 8 to 11) to the design, construction, and operation of Lego and robotic engineering while teaching them the value of teamwork and having fun.
Goldson noted that she was pleased with the overall performance of the children and gave special highlights to the super achievers for their exceptional performance.
“All the children executed well but those four kids really stepped it up with their dedication, attitude, and collaboration abilities, which made them the super achievers. As part of our commitment to social responsibility we had to play our role just as the children played theirs. Through these scholarships we will keep changing lives for the better because we are totally committed to it,” she said.
The educational scholarships granted to the outstanding achievers are just another of the foundation’s contributions. In 2021 the SVF, in collaboration with the Child Protection and Family Services Agency, offered 20 exceptional children in State custody full four-year scholarships, worth about $100 million, to support their academic aspirations.
“We have always supported students’ education; and aside from the fact that these scholarships are meant to lessen financial difficulties, these scholarships have value far beyond the monetary,” Goldson said while mentioning that it is the SVF’s way of saying to each recipient, “We believe in you.”
The Supreme Ventures Foundation was established in order to strengthen the Supreme Ventures Group’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) operations. The foundation’s emphasis is on legacy projects or initiatives that will significantly and permanently improve the nation’s social well-being.
