Staci Scott wins 2018 YCLA

Staci Scott is the 2018 Young Caymanian Leadership Award (YCLA) recipient.
Ms. Scott won the award at Saturday’s (10 November) gala at the Kimpton Seafire.

She was one of the five finalists up for the coveted prize. Ms Scott and her fellow finalists – Kacey Mobley, Kimberley Conolly, Samuel Young, and Wilbur Welcome were all recognized and honored for their work in the community at the event.

Ms. Scott is a certified public accountant. In her acceptance speech, she stressed the importance of giving young people, like herself, opportunities.

She also urged attendees to make time to help young people in the community.

“I challenge you all to give even one hour a week to young persons, as (Faith Gealey) said. Listen to their fears and insecurities, help them with their homework, assure them that they are enough and that they are capable and that they are worthy,” Ms. Scott said in her acceptance speech.

This is the 18th year the awards have been held.

Candidates are nominated each year by members of the public. The programme is open to any Caymanian between the ages of 20 and 35.
