3 GRADUATES GET $1,000 FROM MATCHED BOSTIC GIFT

Aug. 25, 2002 – Three St. Croix high school graduates have received financial assistance through the Colgate-Palmolive Company's matching gift program. The gift originated from Raphael T. Bostic, a Colgate employee whose donation of $1,375 to the school district was matched by the company for a total of $2,000.
Bostic, a senior production manager at Colgate, was on St. Croix recently to participate in his Christiansted High School Class of 1952 golden anniversary celebration. In his gift, he stipulates that three graduating seniors, other than the valedictorian and salutatorian, get $1,000 each to further their education, a release said.
The recipients are: Monica Tyson, a St. Croix Central High School graduate, who will attend Savannah State University; Neverson Bannis, St. Croix Educational Complex Vocational High School graduate, who will attend a DeVry University campus in the United States; and Nikisha Jn Baptiste, of St. Croix Educational Complex Academic High School, who will further her education at Xavier University.
