Young Anguillian Receives Scholarship
The Anguilla Commonwealth Games Association, the Ministry of Sports and by extension the Government of Anguilla extends congratulations to Miss Rechelle Meade on her achievement of a full Athletic Scholarship. Miss Meade will attend the University of Idaho in the USA beginning this Fall Semester. Her hard work and persistence in both academics and athletics has certainly paid off and we are all very proud of her and wish her all the best in her pursuits.
Rechelle competed for Anguilla on many occasions but most notably in the long jump at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
For the Commonwealth Day Celebrations on the island this year, Rechelle presented the Sports Shield to the winning team of one of the primary schools, giving a brief talk on her achievements and what is required to succeed in any sporting activity.
We encourage all students to work hard and focus on what is important to them in life so that they too can also have similar achievements.
