Elroy Edwards, Country Representative RUBIS was on hand to present a cheque for EC$1800 to the school in support of the athletics meet. “The company’s association with Bethel High School is indicative of RUBIS’ overall vision for youth development in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Our level of commitment is evident not only through our support for the Bethel High School sports but also for the Central Leeward Secondary School, Saint Joseph Convent and other schools. We believe such programs are essential to giving the athletes an opportunity to put their skills on show, and extremely important to the overall development of the students, making them better, more rounded, and disciplined individuals” said Mr Edwards.

We appreciate the generous sponsorship offered as it contributed tremendously towards the success we achieved on sports day. I do hope that this year marks the beginning of a long and rewarding partnership between your company and the Bethel High School.”
