Basseterre, St. Kitts – One of the Federation’s longest running community festivals, the Cayon Green Valley Festival, has received the corporate support of the TDC Group of Companies, to successfully host this year’s event.

At a brief ceremony held at the company’s head office on Fort Street in Basseterre, on Wednesday 10th May 2023, Ms. Joycelyn Stapleton, 2023 Green Valley Festival Vice Chair, accepted the bronze level (cash and in kind) sponsorship from Ms. Mia Bailey, Manager and Ms. Jhanelle Brown, Assistant Manager, of the TDC Client Relations and Marketing Department.

In speaking about the corporate support, Ms. Stapleton stated, “This sponsorship from TDC means quite a lot for us. Coming out of the COVID19 pandemic, we have not been receiving the level of corporate support that we normally do, and when we got the call that TDC agreed to support, we were delighted.

She noted, “Our focus this year is education. We have partnered with the Cayon Primary School to host the Green Valley Festival Prince and Princess Show, and to recognize the longstanding service of one of the institution’s teachers. This timely donation will be used in part for this aspect of the festival.”

This donation represents TDC’s commitment to cultural preservation, the Arts, and community development, and aligns with its fiftieth anniversary theme, which is being celebrated under the theme, Your Neighbour, Your Partner, Your Future.

Basseterre, St. Kitts – As the TDC Group continues to celebrate its 50th Anniversary activities, the company has launched the Warren Tyson Memorial Scholarship Public Primary Schools Tour, to showcase its longstanding academic excellence initiative.

On Monday 24 April, Mr. Crios Freeman, a 1994 inductee, made the first in a series of school visits to his alma mater, the St. Paul’s Primary School, on St. Kitts.

In speaking to the student body, Mr. Freeman shared his fond experiences by detailing his journey from the receiving the good news about his selection, the impact of the financial support through his tertiary schooling, the on-the-job training, and the value of the mentorship component of the programme.

“As a recipient of the scholarship the individual will have the advantage of being ‘looked after’ as well as being assigned a mentor, a member from the company who is able to provide you with guidance. This scholarship and its impact on the country will have to be measured, but for me it was an enormous opportunity because maybe I would not have made it through school like I did without the guidance and financial support from TDC,” said Freeman.

He continued, “It was seven years of real fulfilment and assistance from TDC. I have to give gratitude to TDC for the guidance and support it gave to me. Besides the monies on an annual basis that assisted me with school, school supplies. As an athlete, as a debater, TDC gave me great assistance.”

The young lawyer ended his talk by challenging the students with a question-and-answer session. Three (3) of them walked away with cash prizes, two with one hundred ($100) dollars each, and the third a seven hundred- and fifty-dollar (EC$750) donation towards his first year at secondary school.

In closing, Freeman also presented Mrs. Joyce Rawlins Buchanan, Principal, with a token of appreciation in the form of a TDC Voucher valued at five hundred dollars (EC$500), which would be used support the advancement of school-based programs to benefit both, the staff, and students.

Over the next six weeks other alumni will make their own presentations, which are all being held under the golden anniversary theme, Your Neighbour, Your Partner, Your Future.
