The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - By An­gel­ica O'DonoghueHolder

To­mor­row some 90 stu­dents will re­ceive their col­lege diplo­mas dur­ing Mon­roe Saint Lu­cia Cam­pus 9th grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony. Since the col­lege's first aca­demic send-off in 2007 with 33 stu­dents, the num­ber of grad­u­ates has grad­u­ally in­creased over the years.

“This is a healthy tes­ti­mony of our pres­ence here,” said Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent, Dr. Alex Ephrem. “It is also an in­di­ca­tion that we are here to stay as we con­tinue to grow both in terms of stu­dent num­bers and the pro­grammes we of­fer in Saint Lu­cia.”

Sched­uled to be present at the aca­demic com­mence­ment is Prime Min­is­ter, Allen Chas­tanet. He will fea­ture an ad­dress on be­half of the gov­ern­ment of Saint Lu­cia, con­grat­u­lat­ing all the stu­dents on their aca­demic achieve­ment.

Her Lady­ship, The Honor­able Jus­tice Lor­raine Wil­liams, and High Court Judge of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court will de­liver the key­note ad­dress. The res­i­dent Ne­visian High Court Judge is set to ig­nite the grad­u­at­ing class with a ro­bust speech, plac­ing their aca­demic achieve­ment in per­spec­tive.

The grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony is set to take place at the San­dals Grande Beach Re­sort and Spa, Pi­geon Is­land Cause­way, start­ing at 2.30 p.m.

Jus­tice Wil­liams is well known for her no non­sense ap­proach to de­liv­er­ing not only speeches, but also the law!
