Exceptional UWI students to be rewarded

Scholarships, awards and prizes valued at nearly $700,000 will be presented to students at The University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill when the campus holds its annual Student Awards ceremony tomorrow.

The event, themed Aligning Access with Excellence, will enable benefactors and donor representatives to meet and greet their protégés at the awards presentation, and later spend time getting to know each other at an informal reception.

Pro Vice-Chancellor and Principal Professor Eudine Barriteau noted the awardees were selected through a “highly competitive and rigorous process”.

She added that the awards validate the recipients’ tenacity, and also “epitomize diligence and hard work, exemplified by (their) exceptional scholastic and sporting achievements”.

“The campus is pleased to celebrate our students who demonstrate that success is within the reach of those who dare to dream, and then go on to pursue their dreams with purpose and passion; those who with big dreams refuse to be defined by their circumstances, but rather demonstrate faith in the old adage, ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’,” Professor Barriteau stated.
