Local government shows appreciation to PSE top students
Saturday, June 29th, 2013
Honorable Manuel Heredia, Area Representative and Minister of Tourism and Culture, along with Mayor Daniel Guerrero and Chairman of Caye Caulker Village, Wayne Miller presented a check $500BZ to the three top-ranked Primary School Examination (PSE) students of the Cayes.
The three students receiving the checks were Matthew Sandoval from Caye Caulker Roman Catholic School and Jennessa Sierra and Chelsea Zetina from San Pedro Roman Catholic School. Each student accompanied by their parents in whose names the checks were issued.
According to Heredia, the checks are a form of appreciation from the local government, “Education is the most important thing in life, and it is the best thing your parents can give you. We would also like to show appreciation and thanks to the parents of these children for pushing their children to do the best. I congratulate both the parents and the school for a combined effort of excellence,” said Heredia. According to Miller, “This is what happens when children receive good parenting.” Miller also expressed sincere appreciation to the parents accompanying the student.
Mayor Guerrero also presented an honorary plaque to Chelsea for receiving perfect scores in the Mathematics section of the PSE.
The San Pedro Sun joins the local government in once again congratulating the students on a job well done. Keep up the good work!
