Higgs & Johnson was pleased to support the 2016 Bahamas Primary School Student of the Year (BPSTOY). BPSTOY was established in 1997 with the aim of recognizing a group of students who are often overlooked and seldom appreciated. President and CEO, Dr. Ricardo Deveaux noted, “On behalf of the Foundation we are thankful to Higgs & Johnson for their financial contribution and ongoing support over the years. Everyone has the power to make a difference in the life of a child.”

Vania Deal, the H&J Scholarship recipient, graduated as valedictorian of 6th grade at NCA with a GPA of 4.0 and an elementary cumulative percentage of 99%. She enjoys reading, swimming, judo and archery. Her mother noted, “She does not allow medical hurdles to prevent her from running the race called life to the best of her ability.”

Partner, Portia Nicholson noted, “We wish to congratulate Vania on her success at this year’s awards and it is our pleasure to provide her with this scholarship. It was also delightful to talk with her when she visited our offices as she proved to be confident, knowledgeable and well-versed in a number of different areas. We wish her continued success as she moves on to high school.”
