AMEALIA SMITH
Amealia Smith
Amealia Smith is a second form student who is involved in her school life. She is a member of the school's Cheerleading team and manages her time well as she holds the title of top student in her class. She lives in Spanish Town, St. Catherine with her mother, grandmother, two sisters and a brother. All her siblings are minors attending school. Her father died when she was five years old. Since then her mother, who is a vendor, finds it difficult to sustain her family adequately being the sole provider for the family of six. This scholarship will not only provide relief for Amealia’s but will aid her continued excellent academic and social performance.
JOYCE WHITE

Joyce White is a dedicated fifth form student who has maintained excellent academic performance during her tenure at school. Joyce lives at home in Hope Bay, Portland with her parents and a sister. Her father is the sole breadwinner.

This year she was placed third.

Joyce will be sitting eight subjects at the CSEC level this academic year. The subjects are Mathematics, English Language, Social Studies, History, Biology, Information Technology, Principle of Business and Religious education.
