Kaieteur News – “The success that the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, MS has enjoyed over the last thirty years would not have been possible if you and the other sixteen founders did not have the vision and courage to lay the foundation for the current leaders to build on. You served as our first Secretary for over five years and you were a mentor and role model to all of us and that is why we are very proud to honour you today with our highest award- the Dolphin Award of Excellence,” the words of long standing Secretary/CEO of the RHTYSC, MS Hilbert Foster as he spoke at a simple presentation ceremony at the St Francis Community Developers Center in Rose Hall Town.
