New group of young people to be proud of

| 06/11/2013

(CNS): Another dozen young people in Cayman have been nominated in the government’s second round of the Proud of Them initiative. The programme shines a spotlight on the achievements of the recipients in a number of different categories. The latest names were announced last Thursday and the young people will soon see their faces around the island on billboards for the next six months. The minister with responsibility for youth issues Osbourne Bodden said he was pleased to see the community has embraced the Proud of Them initiative. “Showcasing the positive achievements of our young people demonstrates to them that hard work does pay off,” he pointed out.

“Given the quality of nominees thus far, I am confident that the future of the Cayman Islands is in good hands.”

Through a public nomination process, the Proud of Them initiative recognises youth, between the ages of 10 and 25 years for reaching a significant level of success in academics, business, sports, culture, community service or their career. Nominations are encouraged from each district to ensure that young people in each area can identify with those who are selected.

Officials believe that this recognition programme will empower high achievers to continue their efforts, while inspiring others to follow in their footsteps.
