St. Maarten – TelEm Group gave a warm send off to a team of math students from Milton Peters College Thursday, by presenting them with some warm windbreaker jackets and a cash contribution towards their flight.
The MPC math wizzes will be putting their skills to the test in Garderen, in the Netherlands this weekend where they will compete in the annual Kingdom Math-A-Lympiad 2015.
Before heading for the Netherlands they were presented with their “super-warm hoodies” by sales and marketing manager, Emile van der Weerd. “We know it’s cold in the Netherlands right now, so we have taken at least one of the worries away from our island team by presenting them with their own windbreakers so that they can concentrate all their efforts on the job at hand,” said van der Weerd in wishing the teenagers the best of luck.
“It’s a fantastic experience for all of them and we want them to fully enjoy that experience,” said van der Weerd. The MPC Math-A-Lympiad team is represented by: Veerle Bok; Reno Brooks, Mahealeney Kemper and Melissa Mingo. They will also be accompanied by math teachers, Blankendaal and Miss Sno.
