Grenada: two kayak athletes receive a sports scholarship
Hillsborough, CarriacouSeptember 9, 2022 – “Go ahead and make sure you take full advantage of the scholarship opportunity available to you to further develop your sports career.”
This advice given by the Minister of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Communities, Tevin Andrews, to two of the last athletes who are preparing to go to Jamaica.
Dylan Logan, who is from Petite Martinique and attended Hillsborough High School, and Alliyah Gittens, a student at Bishop’s College, received athletic scholarships to attend Edwin Allen High School in Jamaica. Logan has shown great potential in the shot put and discus throw, and Gittens is an exceptional netballer.
Minister Andrews urged them to stay focused and succeed in achieving their career goals. The Government of Grenada, through the Ministry of Sports, provides a monthly stipend to athletes studying abroad.
Head coach in the sports division within the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs, Sebastian Stiell, who has played a major role in the development of the island’s athletes, said his division is happy to see Logan and Gittens join other kayak athletes, who have offered similar scholarship opportunities to student-athletes.
Meanwhile, Ashareah Enoe and Jamora Alves, who were among the first kayak athletes to receive scholarships in Jamaica, were able to secure full university scholarships to attend colleges in the United States.
Enoe attends Highland University and Alves is at St. John’s University. Chief Executive Officer Christopher Husbands led a team on an official visit to the Honorable Tevin Andrew, Minister of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Government, Thursday, September 8, 2022.
