Celebrating top Bahamian primary school scholars for more than twenty years, the Bahamas Primary School Student of the Year Foundation recently announced its 2020 winners including First Runner-Up Miss Raquell Stuart.
Stuart, an eleven-year old 3.84 GPA holder and Senior Prefect Leader at Queens College received a $4,000 scholarship courtesy of Oaktree Medical Center.
As a corporate partner, Oaktree Medical Center Director Dr. Don Diego Deveaux expressed his full support of the work being done by the Bahamas PSSOY Foundation and the accolades bestowed upon students shining bright.
“At Oaktree Medical, we are not only focused on patient care but also the community. We proudly support all students putting their best foot forward especially during this trying time. Education helps to move the country forward, and supporting young people represents our commitment to the next generation of Bahamian leaders. It is our pleasure at Oaktree to be part of a platform which promotes innovation and the advancement of youth.”
Among her many accomplishments, the Oaktree Medical Center scholarship awardee has raised $5,000 for a breast cancer initiative towards the purchase of ports for cancer survivors for chemotherapy. Stuart is also the author of a book soon to be released, “Protect Your Cupcakes – Understanding & Fighting Breast Cancer.”
