Versan Educational Services hosted a prize-giving and send-off ceremony for its students who have secured places in colleges and universities abroad for 2019-2020, many on full scholarships. Some 320 students filed into the Gold Room at The University of the West Indies Mona campus for the occasion last Sunday. They got advice on how to handle roommates, racism, credit cards, selecting courses, making money while in college, among other topics. Versan's top student this year was Ardenne's William Brown, who earned 1530 out of 1600 on the SATs (formerly Scholastic Assessment Test), and is headed to University of Michigan. Sarrah Allen, also of Ardenne, was named Ms Versan. She is heading to Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, USA. Other outstanding student awardees were Amy Hussy, who snagged 11 scholarships but eventually chose Bowdoin College in Maine, also in the US.

Versan provides educational consulting for boarding, college, professional and graduate programmes primarily in North America, and in addition to SAT, offers preparatory cources for such high scool and university entrance exams as Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT), American College Test (ACT) and Graduate Record Exam (GRE). It is run by founder Sandra Bramwell-Rose.

Sunday's presentations were made by Versan's administrative manager Michael Stephens.
