16TH Anniversary: KCN AWARDS ENVIRONMENTAL WORKERS AND OTHERS

 

Kreative Communications Network, a television service featuring local and regional programming on Caribbean Cable Communications, observed its Sixteenth Anniversary on Saturday, February 8, at La Vue, with an awards presentation ceremony.

The event was chaired by former Deputy Principal at the Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive School, Anne Edwards.

The presentation of awards was preceded by an address by President of the Anguilla Community College, Professor Delroy Louden. He spoke to some extent on how education could assist the Anguillian community in moving forward “in terms of informing us, persuading us, guiding us and creating controversies from time to time; and in being “vigilant guardians of some of the most privileged rights that we inherited and enjoy.”
He went on: “Of course, one of the obvious roles of the press is to provide information, but information provision is not sufficient. It has to be information that is relevant; that can be used to educate us and yet also be creative enough to stretch our imagination. We need to use education and the media to grow and develop.” He urged the media, in places like Anguilla, to “use its opportunities to drive a particular agenda around the notion of democracy and fair play, as well as about the value and role of education.”

Professor Louden stressed: “Many of the gems of this island, and elsewhere, are still hidden from history. We have to begin to make our history not just relevant, but also to tell the story of many unsung heroes.”

Carlton Pickering, KNC’s Chief Executive Director, was pleased that the need to recognise unsung heroes and other such persons was mentioned by Professor Louden. He pointed out that among his company’s selected awardees were Environment Health workers involved in solid waste removal on the streets and other public places; and one community worker, Owen Mussington.

The Environmental Health workers, who received KCN’s Appreciation Awards were Richard Finch, Christopher James, Vincent Powell, Richard Julius, Anthony Browne, Roy MacArthur Rogers, Joseph Sylvester and Daniel Rose-Brooks.

The other awardees were as follows: Celina (Princess) Fleming and Sharleen Gumbs: Viewer Award; Claudette Pickering, KCN’s Outside Broadcast Unit Award; Caribbean Commercial Bank: Sponsor Award; National Bank of Anguilla: Corporate Award; Karim Hodge: Recognition Award; Mervin Saunders and Cardigan Connor: Everet Simmon Community Award; South American Import and Mini Lisa Bath & Body busineses: Advertiser Award; Carl Thomas and Rosanna Brown-Harrigan: Staff Excellent Award; and Colwayne Pickering: Chief Executive Officer Award.

In her closing remarks, Ms Anne Edwards commended KCN for its television work in Anguilla, over the past sixteen years, and offered Mr Carlton Pickering and his staff continued success in the future.
