Support continues to stream in for Sherlock Junior Langevine, who has gained a scholarship to attend the highly-rated Stanford University in the United States of America.
The Rotary Club of Demerara and Vieira 66 Logistics have combined their resources to donate an Apple tablet to Langevine.
According to a release from the club, the donation was made possible by the joint efforts of the Club’s President Carey Griffith, Nicholas and Lucus Boodhram of Boodhram Mining, and Matthew Vieira of Vieira 66 Logistics.
In June, the President of Guyana Dr. Irfaan Ali promised to support Langevine’s dream of attending Stanford University by offsetting the additional expenses of the scholarship awardee.
Guyana’s fourth-best performer at the 2019-2020 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) was accepted into the university on a US$324,000 scholarship, but there is a financial gap that needs to be filled before he can commence his studies.
The scholarship for the 19-year-old St. Stanislaus College alumnus covers 95% of the cost of his attendance at the university.
Through public support, Langevine raised additional funds to offset some of his expenses.
