Among the major awards handed out was to the 2018 Employee of the Year, Mara Ferdinand-Jankie.

“I can always be counted on to meet or exceed my deadlines and believe my work ethic and the fact that I am called upon for everything in the office from computer issues, editing, you name it, is the reason I stood out.”
Mrs Jankie also received an award as one of the Employees of the Fourth Quarter in 2018 alongside Tricia James, Joanel Malcolm, Lee James and James Isidore.
The LUCELEC Supervisor of the Year is Mrs Patricia Alfred. She left the award ceremony with some serious hardware! The Customer Service Supervisor was also recognized for 30 years of service to the company and for being the Supervisor of the Third Quarter in 2018. For her, the spoils came with hard work, commitment and dedication.
“I love my job and I’m passionate about my work which makes it easy to stay committed. I believe in going the extra mile in meeting the company’s goals and objectives. The knowledge and experience I’ve acquired over the past 30 years working here have also shaped my work ethic and discipline.”
