The Caribbean Examina-tions Council (CXC) lauded and awarded the region’s high-flyers for this year at a ceremony held at the National Cultural Centre on Thursday evening. Topping the list was Guyana’s Yogeeta Persaud of Anna Regina Secondary School, who attained 18 grade one passes at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exams. She received the most outstanding candidate overall award.
Giving the vote of thanks at the end of the proceedings, Persaud thanked all who played a role in her success and that of her colleagues as well. “I am delighted, honoured humbled, to express words of appreciation on this significant occasion,” she said. “Today is undoubtedly a special day… We are indeed fortunate and thankful that splendid efforts are being highlighted and ceremoniously rewarded,” she added.
Persaud also expressed gratitude to God, quoting Lord Tennyson: “More things are wrought by prayers than this world dreams of.”
