ON THE SCENE: PetroCaribe scholars + Yohan Blake + PM Portia Simpson-Miller + Ranny Williams' relatives + Hon. Edward Seaga

DYNAMIC DUO: Chancellor of the University of Technology (and former PM) Edward Seaga warmly greets PM Portia Simpson-Miller at last Friday's PetroCaribe Merit and Awards Programme. During the ceremony, four students from UTech received scholarships in the areas of Pharmacy, Dental Hygiene, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. After completing their studies, the awardees will work in the public service for five years.

PM Portia Simpson-Miller flashes a wry congratulatory smile as she presents a plaque to Shereda Mitchell, a University of the West Indies (UWI) candidate for a Masters degree in Forensic Science, who was among 30 students presented with tertiary scholarships under the Jamaica50 PetroCaribe Scholarship and Merit Awards Programme last Friday. Mitchell says he hopes to join the fight against crime in the public service after completing her studies. (Photo: OPM)
