I would like to single out Lissa Francis-Davis for special congratulations. Mrs. Francis-Davis is this year’s Desmond Charlse (D.C.) Gascoigne Awardee. The D.C. Gascoigne award is the most outstanding tertiary scholarship granted by the Credit Union and is bestowed on the most outstanding applicant. Mrs. Francis-Davis a teacher at Robert Lightbourne High School in St. Thomas and a student at the University of the West Indies pursuing a Master’s degree in Education Leadership. Mrs. Francis-Davis proved herself to be a very worthy applicant who impressed us greatly in the interview. Her knowledge and passionate about her subject matter and her students shone through in the interview and her knowledge about the Credit Union is outstanding.
