PRESS RELEASE – Saint Lucian students have a proud legacy of performing excellently at The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.
The group of students who graduated at the undergraduate level this year certainly did not do any damage to this great and honourable tradition; rather they engaged in the required labour to polish and perpetuate this impressive legacy.
On the 18th of October, 2014 14 out of 26 undergraduate Saint Lucian students graduated with First Class Honors in a multiplicity of disciplines that are pertinent to the national development of our beloved nation.
The students reaching this esteemed and prized landmark are as follows: Shervana Francois, Pearl Goddard, Melanie Jacob, Amanda Joseph, Edith Henry, Natasha Charlemagne, Kerry Cox, Ed Joseph, Shem Willie, Adahra Charles, Kendall Elva, Shirma Louisy, Sanisha Maximin and Hannolair Michaud.
A significant majority of the remaining students graduated with Honours either at the upper or lower second level. Saint Lucian students at the Cave Hill Campus do not only focus on their academic pursuits but, participate in a wide range of extra curricular groups such as the Saint Lucian Students’ Association at the Cavil Hill Campus (LUSAC).
For instance, Kendall Elva, Melanie Jacob, Hannolair Michaud and Amanda Joseph served as president, vice president, welfare officer and secretary respectively of LUSAC. Pear Goddard also severed as welfare officer of LUSAC. Their involvement in meaningful nonacademic activities is testimony of their quest to self-actualize in a holistic and balanced manner.
It is against this background that special congratulations are extended to all Saint Lucian students who have successfully read for their respective degrees.
It is hoped that they will channel their new skills and knowledge into community and nation building activities aimed at advancing the development of our nation.
