St. Lucian Association USC dominates cultural awards

(SNO) — Saint Lucia once again made history at the University of the Southern Caribbean (USC) Trinidad campus Saturday night!

The Saint Lucian contingent of the school’s campus claimed the vast majority of the awards at the annual International Student Week Award Ceremony.

Saint Lucians are no strangers to excellence at USC. In fact, the Lucian club are perennial winners of various competitions held on campus. However, this year was something special.

The club, led by President Mckern Auguste, walked away with a whopping eight awards on the night, clean-sweeping the five prestige awards and also walking away with three individual pageant awards.

Awards for the night included: Mr and Ms Culture USC, Jean Neal Lima and Letia Alexander, both hailing from the community of Baboneau; ISW Booth Display Trophy, ISW Cultural Culinary Trophy and the big one, the overall Cultural Challenge Trophy.

  1. Bravo! Bravo! Here's something to be proud of Saint Lucians. When bad publicity puts us all to shame we still have aspiring young men and women making LUCIA proud. Hats off to all the Saint Lucians at the University of the Southern Caribbean (USC) in Trinidad for their hard work, commitment to excellence and love for our country, spreading fair Helen's name internationally. Well done Letia and Jean Neal!
