Chargé Johnson presented all of the participants in the business entrepreneurship program with certificates of achievement and gave remarks promoting entrepreneurship, leadership, and teamwork.  Although the simulated business venture did not turn a profit, the Chargé emphasized the valuable lesson the participants had learned and the importance of understanding that everyone may not succeed the first time.

At the end of the meeting, Chargé Johnson officially presented the Central Andros District Council Office Resource Center with a collection of books donated by the U.S. Embassy to assist with increasing the resource center’s recently established reading collection.  This latest donation of books in Andros is part of the U.S. Embassy’s continuing support to improve education and learning resources in The Bahamas.
