On November 1, 2013, we celebrated our 12th Birthday by donating $4,086 to the Girls and Boys Volleyball teams at San Pedro High School and giving away a plane ticket to Belize. Thanks to our great customers who continue to support our efforts to make a difference in the community. Here's to 12 more years!
Every kid in Belize takes the PSE exam before entering high school. Well, Jennessa Sierra from San Pedro RC School finished 2nd in the ENTIRE country! Out of nearly 8,000 kids who took the test. Amazing. Great job, Jennessa, we're all so proud of you! Thanks also to the RC school teachers, including Mr. Kenny and others, who worked so hard. To congratulate Jennessa, we've offered her a full 4 year scholarship to San Pedro High School. And a laptop computer. Congrats, Jennessa!
