Following outstanding results in the recent Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT), seven students were awarded scholarships totalling $350,000 towards their secondary education for the upcoming school year.

The students will receive $50,000 each towards fees and supplies courtesy of Curves, LASCO Distributors Limited's personal-care brand.

Abbey-Gayle Higgins and Keonie Graham will attend Immaculate Conception High; Kristine Williams will attend St Hilda's High School; Ashlee Brown will attend Campion College; Daniel Williams and Danielle Edwards will attend Montego Bay and DeCarteret College, respectively; and Nicole Johnson will attend St Andrew High School for Girls.

The recipients were hosted at LASCO's White Marl facility on August 4 and presented with their awards.

CEO of the Jamaica Teaching Council, Dr Winsome Gordon, lauded LASCO for their continued role in Jamaica's education system.

Parents who attended the luncheon expressed gratitude for the scholarships. The LASCO/Curves GSAT Scholarship is now in its third year.
