The diligent work of three Jamaicans, Garnett Levy, Sherreka Lowe and Gary Roper, certainly paid off as they won all-expense paid trips to Panama City and handsome cash prizes, having placed highly in the China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) Americas Division Employee of the Year competition.

Winners were taken on a tour of CHEC's posh sub-regional office and fêted at the annual street carnival during their one-week tour of the exotic Panama City.

First-place winner, Garnett Levy, is one of 12 drivers for the company. He copped second runner-up for the Jamaican Employee of the Year in 2012; he did not stop there but continued to display an excellent work ethic which earned him the 2013 CHEC Americas Division Employee of the Year award.

Similarly, Sherreka Lowe was also very excited to have received the trip to Panama. She has been an administrative assistant at CHEC for the past three years. During this time, she has proved her dedication through her willingness to work beyond the call of duty in order to ensure that her tasks are properly executed. It is no surprise that Lowe was chosen as the first runner-up in the CHEC Employee of the Year competition.

Like his co-worker Levy, CHEC driver Gary Roper's first experience flying was his recent trip to Panama City as he was the second runner-up in the CHEC Employee of the Year competition. "I was really surprised, my wife now resides in Canada and I thought I would have been able to visit Canada first before travelling anywhere else. But this trip came along and it will always stand out in my mind," noted Roper.
