Kingston Bookshop's (KB) CEO the Hon Steadman Fuller and Mrs Fuller were happy hosts to winners of the Steadman Fuller Developmental Scholarship Award - four schollarships valued at $50,000 per year are awarded to students, based on their GSAT results.

The awards were given to mark the CEO's 60th birthday. Custos Fuller said he chose to mark this landmark birthday "with something that would be of lasting benefit to some very important persons". The scholarships will run for five years, renewable on achievement of criteria, which include no less than a sustained B average and exemplary behaviour, among other things.

Two of the scholarships went to inner-city students Angel Reid and Howayne Mattis. Reid attends Holy Childhood High and would like to become an attorney-at-law, while Mattis is at Kingston Technical High and he has his sights set on being a chef.

The award to the child of a KB employee, went to Keith McKoy, son of Audrey McKoy. McKoy attends Bridgeport High and, in the future, he would like to be either an attorney-at-law or a businessman. The fourth award went to Shaniel Harriott, a Sunday school student at the Waltham Park Road New Testament Church of God, 65 Waltham Park Road. Shaniel attends Meadowbrook High and she is looking towards a career in the sciences.

Following the announcement of the awards, the Fullers hosted the students and their parents in the KB Conference Room at 80 King Street.
