St Kitts and Nevis: Leader of Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) and Premier of Nevis – Mark Brantley congratulated Mr Erim Herbert of Cotton Ground in Nevis for receiving first-ever Cedric Armbrister Scholarship was awarded by the Nevis Electricity Company (NEVLEC).
He took social media and expressed gratitude. He stated that a truly significant ceremony this morning as the first-ever Cedric Armbrister Scholarship was awarded by the Nevis Electricity Company (NEVLEC) to Mr Erim Herbert of Cotton Ground, Nevis. Mr Herbert will be studying engineering at the University of the West Indies.
I feel proud today that the vision of this Government of putting people first is now being manifest in all of our various agencies and statutory entities.
Young Erim is a wonderful example of young Nevisians with huge potential who just need an opportunity. Today NEVLEC provided him with that opportunity and did so in the name of one of the pioneers in electricity generation in Nevis, Cedric Armbrister of blessed memory. Premier Brantley asserted, “I thank his wife and children who attended this ceremony.”
“Herbert, I wish you success in your studies and look forward to your return to help build out a sustainable electricity grid on our beloved Nevis,” stated Premier of Nevis.
Earlier, on the previous day the Nevis Solid Waste Management Authority received a shipment of 2 brand new garbage trucks and other heavy equipment for the landfill. This is a significant investment from the Nevis Island Government in ensuring that we better serve the needs of the Nevisian public.
Effective waste management is a critical part of ensuring a healthy island, and I thank the Board of Directors of NSWMA, the General Manager Andrew Advisor Prentice and his team for their indefatigable efforts to keep Nevis clean and healthy.
