Zhanica Arrindell receives her prize from Acting CBCS President Bob Traa.
WILLEMSTAD/PHILIPSBURG–The Central Bank of Curaçao and St. Maarten (CBCS) has awarded prizes to fourteen students of high schools with HAVO and VWO levels in Curaçao and St. Maarten for graduating top of their schools in Economics.
Two of the awardees are in St. Maarten. Ian O’Connor (VWO) and Zhanica Arrindell (HAVO) are students of Milton Peters College.
The other students are in Curaçao: Richard Pols and Jaden Powell of Radulphus College; Marnix van Thiel, Janay Ogenia and Nirali Manuela of Kolegio Alejandro Paula; Sue-Edy Luciana and Nicole Tejeda of Maria Immaculata Lyceum; Maria Zanolino and Demi Luiken of Dr. Albert Schweitzer College; Willian Ling and Sophia Vermaas of Abel Tasman College; and Roshan Jain of International School of Curaçao.
For several years now, CBCS has offered incentives to stimulate interest and enthusiasm in economics among students.
Acting CBCS President Bob Traa welcomed the students to his offices in St. Maarten and Curaçao respectively, to address them and to present them each with a cheque, in the presence of their parents, economics teachers and school representatives.
CBCS, in a press statement, wished the students much success with their next studies and said it hopes they will return to one of the Dutch Caribbean islands after finalising their studies abroad if that is their chosen path.
