Young men in Antigua and Barbuda are being told to remain focus and to build a network for the future development of the country.
The call comes from Regis Burton, Co-founder of Nolan Hue Foundation, and local entrepreneur who was a guest speaker at an award ceremony acknowledging young men in the country for their contribution in various sectors.
Burton was amongst a number of other business officials, including the Optimist Club of Antigua who awarded the 58 young men from a number of secondary schools across the island.
The awardees, many of which ranged from the age of 15 to 18 years, were given a ‘Distinguished Gentlemen’ award for their achievements in the Academic, Fine Arts, Perseverance and Service and Sports categories.
The ceremony was held in celebration of International Men’s Day, which was observed on Saturday under the theme ‘Stop Male Suicide’.
