Ministry of Agriculture grants 27 bursary awards
DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, September 18, 2019
Minister of Agriculture, Hon. Noel Holder today encouraged awardees of the Ministry of Agriculture’s bursary programme, to look towards the diverse fields of agriculture as they consider a career path.
A total of 27 students were granted awards at the small but humble award ceremony held in the Ministry of Agriculture’s Head office Boardroom. Minister within the Ministry of Agriculture, with responsibility for Rural Affairs, Hon. Valerie Adams-Yearwood also offered some words of advice to the students.
“We live in a world with promise and potential, but let me remind you that it is your choices far more than your abilities that will determine where you go from here, you carry the power to make a difference, it is my sincerest hope that you continue to pursue lifelong learning to keep up with the competitive and ever-changing world.”
“As I look at you, I can see the future of Guyana, the future of our Nation. Today I want to encourage both students and parents to ensure that your children remain in school. There is a famous quote by Dr. Martin Luther King that says Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
