SIS invests in youth
Jerell Webb grew up knowing the importance of dedication to education and in June, his commitment will be rewarded. The Presentation College San Fernando Sixth Form student, with aspiration to become an aviation engineer, has been nominated to attend the Global Young Leaders Conference (GYLC) in Washington DC and New York.
Webb, 18, of Pleasantville, said he believes the conference will challenge, inspire and motivate him to greater things in life. “I consider this to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet and interact with outstanding students worldwide at this annual student leadership venture,” he said. “I will learn to improve my skills in orientation, debate conflict resolution, negotiation, diplomacy and gain advanced leadership qualities.”
Despite receiving an invitation to the conference, nominees are still faced with the astronomical task of raising the funds to get there. “Because of this, I am very grateful to Super Industrial Services Ltd (SIS) who has so generously supported me for this trip. I know that there are other students across the country facing similar circumstances and I urge corporate Trinidad to follow SIS’s example by investing in our young students.”
Based in Couva, SIS has a long and rich tradition of exercising its corporate social responsibility by investing in communities, sports, culture and youth development. Marketing manager Darren Debideen commented: “There are so many ills facing our great nation today, which is why we could not pass on the opportunity to invest into the development of who we believe will be a future leader of our nation.
