In continuing its commitment to building a brighter future for Jamaica, Caribbean Cement Company Limited (CCCL) has awarded 44 scholarships valued at $1.9 million to students for the 2018-2019 academic year. Seventy per cent of the scholarships were granted to students from communities neighbouring the plant based in Rockfort, Kingston; while 30 per cent were granted to children of staff members. The successful applicants met the requirements and excelled during the interview phase. In a brief ceremony held at CCCL’s Sports Club on Wednesday, August 22, Peter Donkersloot, general manager, encouraged the candidates to continue to perform well, make their families proud and to, in the future, give back to their communities. Here Donkersloot interacts with Shanna-Lee Clarke, Shadah McDonald, Ramona Smith and Jordan Williams who are pursuing first degrees in Business Administration, Marine Biology and Electrical Engineering at the University of the West Indies, University College of the Caribbean, and the Caribbean Maritime University.
