His Worship, The Mayor is interested in paving the way for young people to expand on their natural talents and gifts by opening doors for them to have opportunities to do so. With that said, His Worship today granted both 21-years-old, Mr. Ransford Simon and 19-year-old Mr. Bevan Allicock “Young Professional Artist Award”.
Mr. Simon and Mr. Allicock both from Region 9, are being recognized for their outstanding art work displayed at the “Leadership and Professional Ethic Training” provided by Mr. Amarnath Panday from Empowered Guyana Consultancy on the 13th and 14th of January 2021. During the training sessions the young men crafted portrait sketches of three of the participants attending the training, one of which was a sketch of His Worship the Mayor, Ubraj Narine.
His Worship wishes to recognize the two young men for their natural talents in Art. The positive impact and influences that young people can bring to the City of Georgetown shall not go in vain and therefore, His Worship is looking forward to creating more opportunities for young people to be able to expand on their abilities to contribute productively to society.
