Sowhana Pommells (centre), sixth form student at the Immaculate Conception High School, shows off an envelope containing an invitation for a weekend for four at Beaches Boscobel in St Mary, presented to her by Sandals Chairman Gordon 'Butch" Stewart (second left) at the ATL Group corporate offices in St Andrew, yesterday. Sharing the moment are Sowhana's mother Lisa Campbell (second right), her brother Malik Collins, and Arlene Lindo, executive assistant to Stewart. Sowhana, who resides on Matthews Lane in downtown Kingston, achieved 10 grade ones in the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exams in June. Stewart saw an interview in the Jamaica Observer in which Sowhana's mother expressed a wish to take her daughter to the island's scenic north coast and decided to grant the excited family that wish.
