Hundreds benefit from back-to-school fair in Portland

More than 1,000 students from the Fairy Hill and Zion Hill communities in Portland benefitted from the Bright Hope Foundation back-to-school treat held two Saturdays ago at Zion Hill Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
Six students were the recipients of scholarships and electronics, while others received school supplies including bags.

Guest speaker Michael Henry hailed the foundation for organising the stellar event.

“They are empowering persons to gain an education and a better life and giving hope to others to reach out to the stars and strive for excellence and not mediocrity, as we need to soar like the eagle as we become agents of change,” he challenged.
