Junior achievement group gets a boost

Rotary Sunrise has sponsored and
helped to train Tropical Impressions, who have developed, packaged and sold an
attractive range of special occasion gifts.

Tropical Impressions is one of 12
Junior Achievement groups in Cayman. They learn the basic business and
economics of how to run a company and make it profitable by actually forming a
trading business and testing their entrepreneurial skills.

They also learn to plan and hone
their leadership and speaking abilities and are encouraged to seek
opportunities in forming a real business.

The youngsters from Tropical
Impressions have provided their special occasion gifts on Christmas, Halloween,
Easter and Valentines, with extremely positive results, according to Rotary Sunrise.

They added that the group was
already in profit.

Company officers, appointed by
Tropical Impressions are Nikita Durrant, president; Raejani Lopez, vp
production; Amanda Dixon, vp marketing; Divad Aguire vp finance and Trishelle
Chorlette, vp human resources.

“We are delighted to have helped in
this initiative,” said Winston Connolly, president of Rotary Sunrise.

He added that, “All Rotarians
involved are impressed with this ambitious group of youngsters; they are
determined to succeed and a credit to the young people in these islands – with
them Cayman will be in safe hands.”
