When our Scholarship Awardee graduated from the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College with the Associate Degree in Culinary Arts on 28th September, 2022 at Victoria Park, Kingstown.
Among the graduates was a young lady named Zalacher Baptiste. Zalacher was a disadvantaged student, and her plight came to our attention. She became a Mother at a very young age. Coping skills and family support were not readily available. Our Club stepped in to fill the breach.
She and her daughter were mentored by Sis Lady Kathyn and her daughter Rachel. The care and attention of a Surrogate Big Sister and an Auntie transformed her life. She became Head Girl of Intermediate High School and the Club Sisters were so impressed by her determination that sponsorship continued through College.
