In a release from Kingston Jamaica Fast rising Jamaican international record label, Tasjay Productions, has fulfilled a major goal for the label when they provided an additional scholarship incentive to a young talented student of G C Foster College in St Catherine Jamaica last month.
The Manchester born student, Delon Scott is pursuing a degree in physical education and is currently in his second year of studies. Late last year Scott was awarded the Arthur Wint Scholarship from Olivia Grange, Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, that covered Tuition for the remainder of his three year program.
James Smith, CEO of Tasjay Production, thought that an additional incentive to cover other expenses including meals however would allow Scott to focus on maintaining his exceptional 3.89 GPA and even improving it.
“It’s great to hear a young man getting good grades at the college level because fewer young men are finishing college these days. The foundation is here to support our youth in achieving that goal and so we are happy to help out in any way we can,” James Smith explained
The Tasjay Production Foundation was founded last year based on an idea years ago from trending reggae artiste Rad Dixon who is officially signed to the label. The recipient Delon Scott also grew up in Dixon’s parish of Manchester.
The label, who is already investing in Jamaica through music with their various released compilations featuring Anthony B, Luciano and others as well as singles and an upcoming album from Rad Dixon; sees the launch of the Tasjay Production Foundation as a dream realized and looks forward to awarding additional high achieving students at the tertiary level later this year.
