Caribbean group in US awards two scholarships to students
published: Friday March 31, 2006

MEMBERS OF the Caribbean Educators Association (CARE) have awarded scholarships to two graduating high school seniors of Caribbean descent, and have donated school supplies and toys to the Woodlawn School of Special Education in Mandeville, Manchester.

The scholarship recipients are Kaidero Hutchinson, a Jamaican national of Pahokee Senior High School, who intends to attend Florida State University in Tallahassee, and Judith Olicia Monroe, a Bahamian national, who attends the Boyd Anderson High in Fort Lauderdale, and is desirous of attending the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

Dr. Janice Cover, president of the organisation, which was launched in March 2005, commended members for the dedication and commitment through the growing stages. She was addressing the first annual banquet held at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Palm Beach, Florida, recently.

Dr. Cover indicated that members of CARE have begun discussions with the Jamaican Government Education Reform Task Force, to provide professional support and development to educators in the country. Members of CARE include Caribbean nationals, representing teaching staff at all levels of education in Palm Beach county.

Membership is open to persons in other counties in the state of Florida.
