Philipsburg, Tuesday, August 29, 2017
United Telecommunications Services (UTS) has sponsored 150 HYPE Agendas 2017-2018 for the students of the Charlotte Brookson Academy (CBA) for the Performance Arts. Thanks to the UTS sponsorship each student at the school will receive a complimentary copy of the Agenda to use for this academic year.
UTS Marketing and Communication Officer Ivy Lambert officially handed over the Agendas to the school on Monday, August 28.
CBA Director Claudette Forsythe-Labega said an Agenda is essential to the school life of students and she urged students to make good use of the HYPE Agendas and to ensure that they note down their school assignments and reminders.
Lambert said UTS is pleased to sponsor the Agendas for the students and expressed hope that it is put to good use. “Structure is important in staying on top of your studies. Having a proper agenda to organize homework assignments and projects is an important tool to that end. The additional stories and features on young professionals in various fields are also great, because they introduce students to possible future careers in a very relatable way. We commend the publishers of the agenda on their initiative and wish the students a very successful and productive schoolyear. “Lambert continued.
HYPE Agenda Coordinator Zulayka Peterson thanked UTS for its generosity in sponsoring the HYPE Agendas for CBA students. She said this represented good corporate citizenship and was a great support for the education of the country’s youths. “We are very happy that UTS has backed this project. It is a show of good corporate citizenship by UTS and we know that students will be very happy with the HYPE Agendas because it is not just a product that they can use to note down school reminders. It is also a product that is packed with information that students can learn from and it contains the bios of persons with whom they can look up to,” Peterson said.
The HYPE Agenda 2017 – 2018 is themed, “Preservation and awareness of our environment, Treasure the world we are in.”
The Agendas are specifically tailored for the academic year and cover the months that coincide with the school year making them easy for students to use for school related reminders such as noting down their assignments, projects, homework and other school related things. Also included are useful information such as school vacation dates and study financing information.
This is the sixth edition of HYPE Agenda. The first HYPE Agenda was produced in 2008. It was such a big hit amongst high school students that we produced the second one in 2010. This was followed by Agendas in 2013, 2014, for the 2015-2016 school year and is now back for this school year after a break last year, due to challenges in sponsorship.
The HYPE Agenda team is seeking another sponsor so that students at other schools can also receive a complimentary copy of this locally produced product. Businesses and organizations interested in sponsoring can contact Peterson at tel. +1 721 520-1941.
