Bridgetown, Barbados, August 20th, 2014: Guardian Group, a supporter of the development and educational advancement of young persons, is proud to acknowledge Mr. Kyle Pilgrim for his achievements in the recent Barbados Secondary School Entrance Examination (Common Entrance) where he scored 97% Mathematics; 90% English; and a grade B composition. Kyle’s accomplishment has secured him the distinction of top student and valedictorian at his alma mater Lawrence T. Gay Memorial School. Kyle is now on his way to Harrisons College and Guardian Group is pleased to assist him in his preparations by awarding him a voucher for school supplies.
Kyle also holds the honor of being one of the first policyholders of the Student Opportunity Saver (SOS), one of the newest products in Guardian Group’s Life, Health and Pensions (LHP) portfolio. SOS is primarily geared towards young persons and allows parents to secure a sound investment in order to provide that necessary foundation for educational planning and the realization of future goals.
Guardian Life of the Caribbean, the Life, Health and Pensions arm of Guardian Group has as one of its pillars for 2014 – support for children and children’s education and over the year has supported initiatives in this regard. The Teaching Kids to Programme workshop was conceptualized to allow the young students to enhance their capabilities through expressing themselves creatively, developing their computational skills and solidifying their problem solving and reasoning skills. In addition, the LHP arm supported the In the Winners Circle Programme by partnering with the National Task Force on Crime Prevention which sought to sensitize students on some of the challenges they will face as they transition to their new school environment.
Kyle, accompanied by his parents Mr. Roger Pilgrim and Ms. Edna Jack expressed his gratitude on receiving the voucher and indicated that he is looking forward to his new journey.
