As every year, the Collectivity organized Friday evening July 20, in its gardens, the evening of the Laureates. Founded twenty-six years ago, the Laureates' evening has become an unmissable event in Saint-Martin, aimed at honoring young graduates from the island and encouraging them to continue their studies.
Valérie Damaseau, the first vice-president, Daniel Gibbs, the president of the Community, Senator Guillaume Arnell, MP Claire Guion Firmin and prefect Sylvie Feucher, addressed the students who have just obtained their CAP, professional baccalaureate, technological and general.
“The school year was complicated for all the students, for the terminales of the Cité scolaire and of the LPO in particular, because to the daily difficulties was added the pressure of the Baccalaureate. Irma has done great damage to our schools, you have worked under difficult conditions, and this evening I would like to publicly acknowledge your efforts, those of the teaching staff and of the directors of establishments, to achieve this very honorable result given the circumstances. A word for the family, because without them you would not be there. Support for parents is so necessary. Said Daniel Gibbs. And to add for those who failed: "I tell them all my comfort, I especially tell them that you must not give up, that you have to work and that there will be better days." I often say: sometimes you have to go through failures to be successful. Don't give up, work always ends up paying. ” (More details on www.soualigapost.com)
