St. Maarten – Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams was the first out of close to 300 walkers to arrive at the Marigot waterfront on Saturday morning at the Journey for Education walkathon. The trophy for second place was presented to Florine, while Gilbert was presented with the third place trophy.
Wescot-Williams was presented with the first place trophy for the Foundation’s 30th anniversary of their walkathon as the walkers gathered at the waterfront and were being served breakfast by the Journey for Education members. Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Dr. Rhoda Arrindell also participated in the walkathon.

Foundation President Rolando Tobias, who was very pleased with the participation and achievement of the prime minister, was the one to present her with her trophy. Tobias believes Wescot-Williams’ attendance demonstrates her commitment to fitness as well as to the Journey for Education Foundation.
Founded in 1982, the Journey for Education Foundation has been granting supplementary scholarships to students pursuing tertiary education for the past 30 years. The organization raises funds for this purpose by hosting two events every year; the fundraising walkathon in April and the annual gala dinner. In celebration of its 30th anniversary walkathon, the foundation decided to award trophies to the first three walkers who complete the walk from Le Grand Marche to the Marigot Waterfront. Tobias expressed appreciation to the many sponsors and the dedicated members of JFE for making the walkathon a success.
