If you’ve never heard about Cowley district, located near Kellits in Clarendon, you are reading about it now.
It is the home community of young scholar Alaya Benjamin, who has attained a whopping 10 CSEC subjects, administered by the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC).
Alaya earned the best grade possible (Grade One) in nine of the subjects, namely:
- English A
- Human and Social Biology
- Physical Education and Sports
- Information Technology
She got straight ‘A’ Profiles in eight of those subjects – including Mathematics and English A.
Alaya, in the meantime, got a Grade Two in Additional Mathematics.
“When I got my results, I was surprised,” the Clarendon College past-student told The Beacon, adding that she did not expect Grade One in Human and Social Biology as well as Mathematics. “For everything else, I was just proud and overjoyed,” she further declared.
Alaya, a past student of McNie All Age School in Clarendon, wants to become a surgeon.
