Prime minister awards Jevanic Henry for academic excellence

PRESS RELEASE – On Thursday, June 26, 2014, Jevanic Henry was presented with the “Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony Award for Excellence” for his outstanding performance in the CSEC (popularly known as CXC) exam in 2013.

Henry, who is currently a student at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, was the top performer at the Vieux-Fort Comprehensive Secondary School (VFCSS). In 2013, he wrote 13 subjects and received 12 ones, among which nine were distinctions and one two.

Jervanic is from the community of Banse, La Grace.

The “Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony Award for Excellence” was introduced to the list of prestigious awards at the Annual Graduation Ceremony of the VFCSS in June 2013, as Dr. Anthony’s personal contribution to his alma mater. Last year, Dalsha Lafeuille received the trophy and a monetary prize of $1,000 for her top performance of ten ones, nine of which were distinctions, in the 2012 CSEC exams.

This year, the monetary component of the award was increased to $1,500. The award was presented to Jervanic at the 46th Graduation Ceremony of VFCSS by Press Secretary to the Prime Minister, Jadia Jn. Pierre-Emmanuel.

Dr. Anthony has pledged to continue this award and will recognise this year’s top achiever at the 2015 graduation ceremony.

The top 2014 Common Entrance student at the Plain View Combined School will also be awarded with a trophy and a monetary prize at their graduation ceremony.

  2. so why isn't there a story about the Sir Arthur Lewis female student as well. after all she hails from Laborie and have been capturing awards from since her departure form Vieux-fort comprehensive. walking away with all awards for the subjects she have excelled at.

    • Why are females left out of the picture? Besides that, what is going to get us out of the hell hole Kenny has created is not academics per se, but technology. We have a misplaced emphasis on both counts.

      The chap's achievements are not in any way in question here. He quite rightly deserves recognition.

      However, Kenny insights and foresights are rather dull. He could not even see that the 14.5% salary hike that he was marchng for with the CSA would come back again to bite him in the tail. It boomeranged! What a moron!

  3. St Lucia full of little geniuses, root them out, nurture them and see what happens.

    To me it would've been more appropriate for that to be a Sir Arthur Lewis award what Kenny Anthony award...steups. For the Kenny lovers this ain't political I just don't see much academic about the man to look up to.

    • P.S. I hope the £1500 comes out his pocket and please don't cut 5% from it in future awards to come.

  4. Congrats, Jervanic. Coming from the community of Banse, I am sure there is an inspirational story behind the your achievement, which I'd love to read about.

  5. Congratulations to Jervanic Henry. Hope he maintains similar high standards of performance at SALCC. However, in the absence of the prime minister, would it not have been more appropriate for the award to have been presented by the deputy prime minister or the minister for education, even if it is in the name of Dr. Kenny Anthony—unless it is in his capacity as district representative?
