  1. Not true for that one I got and I know many others who got scholarships to Morne Tech now SALCC. I know now persons there on scholarships it is only this one now from the NYC or through NYC. Let us stop playing who did and did not do, congrats NYC.

  2. This is the first time in St. Lucia's history that the underprivileged has been considered. In fact they have been systematically denied in the past. The initiators must be applauded.

  3. This is the best news I've heard in a long time!
