Anthony attained a perfect Grade Point Average (GPA) of 4.0 to claim the coveted Award for Overall Academic Excellence, sponsored annually by Republic Bank. He was enrolled in the Natural Sciences programme in the School of Arts, Sciences and Professional Studies.
The award was presented by Manager, Retail Services, Republic House Cluster, Mr. Mc Kie Griffith. It includes a commemorative plaque and a TimeSaver account valued at $5,000.00 (FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS).
Commenting on Anthony’s achievement, Griffith remarked: “At Republic Bank, we recognize excellence, and Anthony is most deserving of this recognition. Hopefully, this token can help put him on the path to developing a good savings habit, as he transitions to becoming a young professional.”
When asked how difficult it was to achieve his success, Anthony remarked: “It was a lot of work; but I knew if I put in the effort, I could do it.” His plan is to migrate to the US to pursue a degree in civil engineering.
We congratulate Mr. Alexander on his achievement thus far, and encourage him to continue to work hard to achieve his academic and professional goals. Republic Bank has presented this award for the past nineteen (19) years, and remains committed to youth development, through education.
