Justice Lorraine Williams to deliver keynote address at Monroe College Graduation
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!
