Minister Connor pays Tribute to D’Shnay

Minister of Tourism & Economic Affairs Claret Connor recently paid tribute to St. Maarten’s Reigning Teen Carnival Queen D’Shnay York who won the Haynes Smith Talent Teen Pageant in St. Kitts on December 30. He congratulated her on behalf of his entire Ministry.

The Minister presented D’Shnay with a congratulatory letter from his Ministry and hailed her as a true ambassador for St. Maarten. He said the competition was very close between D’Shnay and the first runner-up who hailed from St. Kitts which is evidence that the judges recognized the hard work D’shnay put into the pageant.

“Your success at the competition is a great victory for the people of St. Maarten, not because you emerged victorious, but because you were able to give your best while you proudly represented St. Maarten,” the Minister said.

“We are extremely proud of you and your team and wish you much success during your reign. May your reign be one of continued growth and success. Continue to make St. Maarten proud in all of your endeavors.”
