Eight outstanding Teachers from the Lower Corentyne area were recently honoured by the cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC) under the club’s sixth Scotiabank Tribute to Teachers programme which recognizes the outstanding roles they are playing in the educational development of youths.

Each of the awardees received a certificate of excellence and a special gift. RHTY&SC Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster at the presentation ceremony described the awardees as molders of the country’s future since they are the ones that produce doctors, engineers and lawyers among other professionals.
Foster noted that an educated mind is the most important asset a human can obtain while he urged the awardees to always uphold the high traditions they have set themselves and to make sure that they remain positive role models to their students.
The club’s long serving Secretary/CEO stated that they are very passionate about the pursuit of education for students and would continue to invest heavily into that sector annually.
President of the Guyana Teachers Union, Pastor Mark Lyte congratulated the awardees, also noting that they were excellent ambassadors of a noble profession. Lyte also expressed gratitude to the RHTY&SC and cricket teams for the role they are playing in the promotion of the importance of education.
Lyte, who once served as an Executive member of the club urged other clubs to emulate his former club as Guyana strives to develop its young minds.
