Results of the examinations administered by the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) were released this week. Members of the Rotary Club of Montego Bay hosted a congratulatory luncheon for some students of Cornwall College Interact Club who attained excellent passes.

   The luncheon was held on Tuesday at the Pelican in Montego Bay shortly after they collected their result slips.
   The students who were honoured were senior members of the Cornwall College Interact Club, former Head Boy, Malike Kellier and former Deputy Head Boy, Norman Malcolm. Malcolm is a past president of the Club while Kellier was a director of fundraising.
   According to Rotarian, Natasha Parchment Clarke, the service-oriented students amassed a total of 10 credits and passes for level one and 10 distinctions for final results in their CAPE subjects.”
   The Western Mirror was able to speak with Norman Malcolm, who expressed that he was humbled by the recognition he received by the Rotarians.
   “For me it’s mind-blowing, I knew I had it in me and I can’t believe that it has come like this ... I am so happy I have been waiting on this for a while,” Malcolm said.
   In terms of preparation, Malcolm said he had to organize his schedule to ensure that he prepared adequately for the examinations.
   “Preparation took a lot of dedication ... I was involved in debate up to that time (of the exams) and ... I had to keep a balance with school and the extra-curricular activities,” he added.
   Kellier is equally pleased with his results. He and Malcolm graduated from the Cornwall College this year.
   She said that Malcolm attained four distinctions while Kellier gained six distinctions. They are both heading to the University of the West Indies, (UWI) Mona campus in St. Andrew and will be moving into the Rotaract Club there for young professionals aged 18—35 years.
   The former Cornwall College Interact Club executive leaves organization in the capable hands of President Ivan Godfrey Vice President Deon Mitchell and Fundraising Director Romaine Miller.
   President of the Rotary Club, Mexine Bisasor, congratulated the students on their achievement. The Interact Club is the Rotary’s outreach club for high school students.
