What a Former Nominee Had To Say



Professional Baseball Player in San Francisco Lucius Fox gives the Giants an exciting prospect.



I Am A Living Testimony That With God, All Things Are Possible And HE Indeed Orders Our Steps. It Has Been Almost Seven Years Since I Competed For The Coveted Bahamas Primary School Student Of The Year Title. I Count It An Honor And Privilege To Have Been Nominated To Have Represented The Jolly Giant Giants Of St. Johns College (A Big Thank-You). Although Hesitate To Compete, My Mom Mrs. Dotlee Fox, Took The Bull By The Horn And We Gave It Our Best Shot. Although I Did Not Win The Title, My Family And I Were Grateful That I Was Chosen As The 4th Runner$3,000.00 Scholarship By Commonwealth Bank (Thanks For Investing In My Future). This Enabled Me To Realize One Of My Dreams- To Attend The Great St Augustine‘s College For The 2009/2010 Academic Years. During The Fall, Sac’s Softball Team Competed In The Bahamas Secondary Schools Softball Tournament And Won The Coveted Title.

Another Exciting Moment Happened During The Summer Of 2010, The Freedom Farm Baseball League 12-U Participated In 2010 Cal-Ripken World Series In August –WOW. What Seemed To Be Impossible With Man, Turn To Be Possible With God Because It Was A Great Struggle But God Had It All Planned For Our Good So That He Would Get The Glory. This Confirms My Belief That Hard Work And Determination Pays Off.


Thanks To My Coaches Greg Burrows Jr & Sr. And The Other Coaches. Another Twist In The Road Came When God Open Another Door For Me And Ordered My Steps To Attend American Heritage School Of Boca /Delray At The Tender Age Of 12. While Many Thought This Would Be Frightening Experience, My Parents And I Eagerly Embraced The Opportunity To Interact With Children All Over The World And Also Gain More Knowledge And Exposure. Nevertheless, I Still Love My Home And I Am Grateful To My Bahamian Teachers, Coaches, Church And Supported Who Planted The Seed, While Others Water It And Watch God Give The Increase.

Hats Off To Dr. Ricardo P. Deveaux CEO, Officers And Members Of The Bahamas Primary School Student Of The Year Foundation Organizers, Sponsors And Supporters Of This Great Awards Program For Using The Wisdom That God Has Given To Seek And Identify The Brightest Minds That Our Country Has To Offer And Enable Others Like Me To Take Advantage Of The Golden Opportunities Available Which Will Continue To Aid In Molding And Shaping Our Lives So That We Can One Day Become Productive Citizens And Give Back And Help Others To Realize Their Dreams And Aspirations.

The Bahamas Primary School Student Of The Year Experience Was Once In A Lifetime Opportunity. I Was Extremely Honored To Be Chosen To Represent Lyford Cay International School In The Competition And Am Grateful For All Of The Hard Work My School, Teachers, Family, and Coaches Put In To Assist Me In Doing Well. In The End, This Gracious Help And Support Ensured My Success In The Competition And I Joyfully And Gratefully Accepted The Prestigious Award For The First Runner Up.

This Experience Was Amazing One For Me, As I Was Able To Define Myself As A Student ,Discovering Who I Really Was And What I Was Capable Of Doing . In Addition To This Competition Such As The Bahamas Primary School Student Of The Year Allow Children From Different Schools All Over The Bahamas To Interact With One Another. This Was My Favorite Part Of The Competition, Because It Was Always My Goal To Make New Friends. As A Result Of Participating In The Bahamas Primary School Student Of The Year Competition. I Have The Self-Confidence To Strive To Achieve My Full Potential In School And In Life. I Am Extremely Grateful To The Foundation For This Tremendous Opportunity.
