.Mahalie Seymour, PACE High School graduate student, is the recipient of a brand new Compaq Presario computer.
The McKeeva Bush Foundation for children and elderly in need, in conjunction with the New Self Help Foundation, awarded Mahalie the new computer for her outstanding work at school.
Handing over the computer, Mr. Bush said he was only too happy to assist children in need.
‘In this age of technology all children that are inclined should have this kind of equipment at school and at home,’ he said.
Mr. Bush also said he was impressed with the work the New Self Help Foundation was doing in the community. ‘This is the kind of help Cayman needs, providing a lot of community work that Cayman could not pay for.’
Mr. Bush also expressed gratitude to teachers who were doing a wonderful job but did not get as much credit as they deserved.
According to George Town Primary School Principal Marie Martins, Mahalie was also an outstanding student at George Town Primary.
The New Self Help Foundation helps youths develop a sense of self-worth and help them recognise their full potential.
Self-Help Foundation CEO JC Connor said the award is part of the Youth Empowerment Programme of the NSHCF.
‘We hope that by recognising the needs of our young people and helping them reach their full potential, more young persons in our society will achieve success.’
