The Rose Hall Ton Youth & Sports Club, MS on Friday last honoured five deserving Berbicians for outstanding contributions towards the development of Berbice and Guyana. They were honoured as Guyana’s most dynamic youth and sports organisation, the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS hosted the 6th Annual Edition of the Ansa Mcal Award of Excellence. The Awardees were honoured for contributions under the sub-headings of Health, Sports, Culture, Education and Community Development.
The Ansa Mcal Award of Excellence is the second highest of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club twelve awards and is organised by the ten cricket teams of the club: King Solomon Under-12, Poonai’s Pharmacy Under-13, Farfan & Mendes Under-15, Bakewell Under-17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, Metro Female, Gizmos & Gadgets Under-21 and First Division. Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster stated that members of the public were invited to submit nominations of persons who have served Guyana beyond the call of duty, have made a positive impact and is a role model to youths. Foster spoke of the importance of honouring heroes during their lifetime as it serves no purpose to do so when they die.
Guyana and Berbice owe the Awardees all the respect in the world and Foster hailed them as living heroes who have made God’s world a better place for all of us to live in. Those honoured were Sydney Jackman – Sports, Terry Davis Chester – Health, Clement Edwards – Culture, Claudette Glasgow – Community Development and Sharifan Bhagan – Education. Sydney Jackman represented the Senior Guyana Cricket Team during the 1960’s and has served the Upper Corentyne Cricket Association with distinction as an administrator, while Terry Chester has served as a dedicated nurse for decades at the Ministry of Health. Claudette Glasgow has touched and changed the lives of countless persons in her capacity as Head of the Limlair Shining Star Group, while Mrs. Bhagan served for a long time as the Region Six Educational Officer and currently the Head of the Berbice Cyril Potter Teachers College. The fifth Awardee, Clement Edwards, an educator by profession, was nominated by the Region 6 Ministry of Education Department for the role he played in the promotion of culture in the Educational System. Each of the Awardees received a trophy, medal, framed Certificate of Excellence and a collection of gifts.
Vice President Mark Papannah and Asst Secretary/CEO Simon Naidu, who organised the event, disclosed that a panel of judges headed by veteran Television Journalist Gregory Rambarran chose from nominations from the general public.
