Angela Sands Is 2020 CBC Carleton Williams Scholarship Winner

Roanna Saintil Awarded One-Year Scholarship Via Private Donors

Each year, the Caribbean Bottling Company’s (CBC) Carleton Williams Scholarship Committee has the extremely difficult task of choosing just one recipient. And, each year, the review and interview process seems more challenging than the last. After narrowing down the applicants and meeting the finalists via Zoom video chats, the CBC team, which included Nikia Wells - Communications Marketing Manager, Gabriella Suighi - Activations Marketing Manager, and Karla Wells-Lisgaris - Brand Manager, found themselves deadlocked. All of the students, who were recent graduates of Garvin Tynes Primary, were exceptional, with amazing grades, glowing recommendations, a bevy of extracurricular interests, and big dreams for their futures. With only one scholarship spot available, the decision seemed impossible. But, after a long deliberation about the talented and bright group of sixth graders, Angela Sands was chosen to receive a full, 6-year scholarship to St. John’s College.

Angela proved to be bright, intelligent, gifted and displaying a confidence well beyond her years. The CBC interview panel was extremely impressed with the 12 year old’s stellar academic performance, and her commitment to the arts. In addition to playing the violin, she is a junior debutante, actively involved in her church and a volunteer at the Salvation Army of the Bahamas. She also graduated with a final GPA of 3.75.

During the interview process, the CBC panel also met Roanna Saintil. They were all instantly impressed by the 4.0 student’s intelligence, grace and presence. And, at just 10 years old, Roanna stood out due to her quick wit, charm, interest in learning languages and her passion for creating comic books. With only one scholarship available, Wells-Lisgaris reached out to a number of private donors, and a second, one-year scholarship was awarded to Roanna to attend a private school in the fall.

“Our team was so impressed with this year’s crop of CBC Carleton Williams Scholarship applicants,” said Nikia Wells, Communications Marketing Manager. “Each year, it gets more difficult to choose a winner. We met some amazing scholars, who are not only truly intelligent and actively involved in their schools and communities, but also charismatic and engaging. We were ecstatic to award Angela with a scholarship, and truly elated that several private donors were also able to award Roanna with a one year scholarship to continue her studies.”

Both students are excited to begin their high school careers, and CBC looks forward to seeing their journey unfold.

Angela joins 2019 recipient Gabriel Hall, 2018 recipients Kennedi Knowles and Anajah Culmer, 2017 recipient K. Kaiya Pinder, and 2016 scholarship winners, D’Ron & T’Ron Strapp. Gabriel currently attends Sunland Baptist Academy in Grand Bahama, Kennedi and Anajah currently attend St. John’s College and Aquinas College, respectively, Kaiya is a student of the Bishop Michael Eldon High School, and twin brothers, T’Ron and D’Ron, are wrapping up the tenth grade at Aquinas College.

The CBC Carleton Williams Scholarship was created to celebrate the work of Carleton Williams, who contributed greatly to the advancement of the Caribbean Bottling Company as well as his community. The academic scholarship rotates annually between New Providence and Grand Bahama, and awards one graduating public primary school student seeking to attend a private high school.
