Delta Petroleum Salutes a Shining Star: Mickaila Newman
During the Range Rover Drawing, eyes and hears of all ages were listening and watching to find out who the lucky winner would be of the 2010 Range Rover Sport. Ms. Mickaila Newman, 11 years of age, was also watching closely because she dreamt that her grandmother would be the winner. Although her grandmother did not win, she still wrote a letter to the Regional General Manager of Delta Petroleum to express her thanks for a job well done and for giving back to the community.
After being personally touched by Ms. Mickaila’s letter, the Regional General Manager, Mr. Bevis Sylvester, wanted to meet her, but no contact information was available in the letter. Some three months later, Mickaila Newman approached Mr. Sylvester while at the BVI High School Sports Day.
During a private conversation with her and her grandmother, she stated that her dream was to one day see the Regional General Manager’s office and to work for Delta Petroleum. Mr. Sylvester promised to make her dreams come true.
On Tuesday, April 12, 2011, Mickaila and her grandmother visited Delta Petroleum offices where Mr. Sylvester spent time learning more about her and sharing wise tips for success. In addition, Delta Petroleum presented her with a cheque to assist in purchasing school related items.
The Regional General Manager stated, “I am pleased that a young person recognizes Delta’s effort and commitment to community enhancement. The Bible teaches that the children will lead the way and this inspires me to do more for children and families in the coming months.” He also committed to adopting and mentoring Mickaila throughout her primary and high school years as one of Delta’s Shining Stars.
Further, Ms. Mickaila was invited to attend the upcoming “Bust Your Kite: Fly Your Kite Promotion,” which will take place on April 29, 2011 adjacent to the Cruise Ship Pier.
