The plaques bearing the names of all seventy alumni were unveiled by Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, with assistance from Dr. Lilith Haynes, following the ceremony to honour the 70 outstanding UWI graduates who have made significant contributions in public service, the medical and legal fields, academics and economic development.
These kinds of plaques are often seen as prestigious things to achieve, with some businesses even getting them commissioned for specific events from https://www.plaque-direct.com and other such businesses. Acknowledging the worth in other careers and lives is also important, however, and thus the ceremony was held to commemorate these individual’s contributions to society as a whole through their hard work.
Prime Minister Harris was among two leaders of the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis to have been honoured by the University of the West Indies, along with Senior Minister the Honourable Vance Amory. Both were recognized by UWI in the areas of Leadership and Public Service.
The honouring ceremony was held on Wednesday (October 10) at the Quadrangle located on the Main Campus of UWI’s Cave Hill Campus.
The names of the 70 exemplary UWI alumni now hang prominently in the halls of the Leslie Robinson Building-named in honour of the late Professor Leslie Robinson, the first Principal of the UWI, Cave Hill Campus.
